    Great demonstration! I just nabbed a backlit model with the original, rebuilt battery. You definitely answered some questions for me. 

    Do you know of any good sources for pseudo-ram cards? I'd like to upgrade mine (currently at 2mb)

    Can somebody help me? I want to collect retro and old computers (in some of them I have sufficen information to buy them) but in cases like this Macintosh confuses me, I want to buy a Portable M5126 (because of his backlight) and I want a Desktop one..but I don't know which one is the best…Take note I will use them and play games and use progams on those computers, I don't buy to take the things and make them troophys…I really want to make some old and retro Apple computers (alongside with the IIC Plus, IIGS, iMAC (Old ones with Power PC for being retro MAC games like Marathon or his port of Wolfensetein) and everything else…I still need help for both, for oldest and mid90 ones…anybody can help me which ones are the best? (Take note I also will buy the Color Classic but need help on B/W and mid90 ones)

    "Digital? Every idiot can count to one" This was a remarkable quote from Bob Widlar, a pioneer in analog integrated circuit design. However, I don't think that this computer was designed by a team of idiots. The complexity that the engineers dealt with whilst designing it is beyond belief.
    Your videos are fantastic by the way. Thanks.

    Hey Jason, your videos are really in depth. That's wonderful. I hate videos where people just having music playing. Your videos are like watching a pro documentary. Cool 💜💜💜

    I'm guessing the green wire is because of a broken trace? Why do these form and how did you find them?

    Where do you get all of these old Macs? I'd imagine if you bought them all off of eBay and the like it would cost you a fortune.

    love the video…gone are the days when you could scrap down a laptop without a screwdriver…. by the way do they still have the hand written signature inside the case in the new Imac?

    I discovered recently that you can remove the controller board from the stock Conner CP-3045 and swap it onto a CP-3040A (as used in some early Mac desktops), so they can be used with the Portable.

    Cant believe you didnt see a clear "16Mhz" mark on a 68k chip. That "12" at the end of first line may mean anything.
