New Classic in the Family

Meet my new, old Mac Classic II... she currently speaks French. Ok! Ok! She's not an Amiga! But she ain't a PeeCee either (definately off topic)

Gooood for you Pete, coming from a Mac owner. I have not seen one of hose babies in years. I can barely make it out, but it looks like OS 6.1 on the screen? Is'nt that the max it can run?

Nooope it isn't. Here's my Classic II , who speaks spanish and runs OS 7.01 withe the Tuneup addon.

It can run up to 7.1, but not anymore. System 6 runs awesome on it and its the recommended system for maximum performance.

That's pretty bad there Fred if you see BSOD's that often :eek

Rarely do I see one, but then again I reformat my drive everytime I upgrade my box which seems to be every 6 months or so

I assure you, Jim..you are one of the lucky few.
At work, at home, I see people getting it on laptops on commute trains. While I tap away at mty beautiful iBook. Almost 2-3 times a week someone will remark on it and I'll sometimes go on my anti MS rant. I've convinced a few I hope to try the Mac way.

I dont think the newest Macs have the Sad mac icon in them, do they? I have never seen it. However, I've seen MANY Bombs

Here it is so you dont forget it. My Mac got pissed off when I touched her left nipple

God, speaking of bombs, my first computer, an Atari St, used to bomb so often I phsically smashed the head of my pal Kraig who sold it to me. He was enjoying his new Amiga 500 and later got a 1200. Drool.
OS X is so ridiculously stable that I have yet to hear of one crashing. This is in large part due to the OS's kernel being BSD Unix. The OS of legendary stability, of course. Wanna hear a funny story? The idiot freind of mine that built my PeeCee invited me to a LAN party. UGH. FPS and such. So I sat there as their beloved XP gave networking troubles and two of them had their XP crash. Hours wasted. Meanwhile, I am using XP on my iBook, giggling gleefully. Never had a problem with XP on my Mac.

Mais Oui. One of the problems at the LAN party, and many offices, is that 2 XP networked machines cannot see each other. Yet if my employer and I do this with VPC on airport wireless, both using XP, it works perfectly. Another ridiculous example of the superiority of Mac OS architecture.

Well I do actually have a MAC, officially it's a MAC clone from Power Computing. It's a PowerCenter 150 that has been upgraded with a 400MHz G3 and 256MB of ram. Problem is that it can only run up to System 9.xx

Since I'm primarialy a gamer I tried running some games on it and it was really lacking in power Even sticking in a Voodoo 5 PCI card didn't help it any

At this point I'll just use it to mess around with and then maybe get a new eMAC instead, but what I really want is either a dual G4 box or a Titanium PowerBook

Oh well, I guess I know how to build my own boxes and what works and doesn't work together and one thing that a Windows based machine needs is plenty of RAM, you really should have 512MB minimum, preferrably 1GB or more as RAM is pretty darn cheap now a days

Also I'm interested in knowing what you use to run XP with on your MAC so fess up Fred

OK, Jim. My iBook is a G3 700 MHZ and 512 MB RAM, running OS X.
Thats pretty much all I need to run VPC perfectly. Only downside: No matter what, gaming on it (meaning running Windows games)will be slow. Only the older PC games, such as those from 1997-98 or those not requiring 3D effects heavily, run fine. No big deal, thats why I have a PeeCee.
As for a Titanium Powerbook, that is total drool factor. My boss owns one and its got the huge screen, and its to die for.
Now, those new lil eMacs are cool. They are G4s, y'know. And your clone is poor on games? Well it IS a clone and it is old. My freinds G3 366 MHZ iMac runs all his Mac games fine, save for the intense newer ones. Thats why he got the Nvidia Ge Force 3 and should be blazing soon. As for your problems with not being able to run OS X, which blows System 9.x to smithereens, is your clone a G3 upgrade? G3 upgrades cannot run OS X. No matter, OS X is only runnable on native G3's and G4's and upcoming G5's. And only on Apple's propietary units.

Yeah, it's a G3 upgrade and I knew that it wouldn't run OS X but hey I bought the unit for $100 bucks with a 17" monitor so I can't really complain

As for games, I only run native MAC games, but even these are a bit slow except perhaps Warcraft II

No matter, System 9.xx architecture is vastly more intelligent and ordered than any Windows OS out there. I use it in Emulation on my iBook for some apps.

Fred, Akira: Thanks for all the comps It's my first MAC. Even still my first Apple (I played with Apple II's but never owned one).

Akira: maybe they can cross train languages while they play

Given my french isn't the tops I'll be slow learning (unless I scarf an english os). I looked at the everymac site for the specs and they claim 7.6.1 will run on it but real mac owners (Fred) I'll listen to

She knows how to run some games now (Sargon being one) so I'll have to consider the danger of os replacement.
