    Holy crap I never knew what Jan Beta looked like.
    He looks like Santa's younger brother who grows weed.

    Not only did you need that T15 to open the case, doing it yourself immediately voided your warrantee. You had to take it to a "Qualified Apple Service Shop" in order to maintain that warrantee, and pay quite a hefty price in the process. Making this ironic, is that the signatures of all the devs were etched on the inside of the case, and opening the case was the only way you could view them.

    I had ALL of those, many of every model made, then about 8 years ago I threw them all away. The trash pickup company gave me a receipt for hauling it all away… 12 tons.

    LOL is that the SE's mouse click you're using as a heart beat sound effect? Well done, Sir.

    My middle school was chock full of SE's. Two computer labs of them and then each classroom had one. I don't think I ever saw one configured for 2 floppy drives. Would that allow you to copy discs, like a dual VCR?

    My SE is going to arrive tomorrow! Needs a lot of love but nothing that I can’t fix. Definitely my favorite in the compact mac family alongside the Plus

    I'm not a fan of Apple, but the original Macs were good looking computers. The clear cases on the prottypes look cool too. I can see why they went with that look on the original iMacs.

    I have an Acer Revo RL-85 and I think it's one of the best looking PCs ever made. Just a nice little white rounded glossy cuboid (though where it'[s sitting and the job it's doing right now, it'd look nicer in glossy black.

    My dad has an SE/30. He apparently used it at least until 1995 as a text editor for collage. Today this se is still awaiting restoration. The machine powers up into a floppy disk with a ? in it (the cause of which is obviously because I don't have a startup floppy). I also don't have a keyboard and mouse.

    A bit past the turn of the century, I came across a Mac SE 4/40 at the local hospital thrift shop for $40. As an MS-DOS/Windows user, I saw ir as "enemy tech." (Kinda like a MiG-21.) After a few days, the manager let me have it for $25, and that began my trip "down the rabbit hole." It had been the property of a University of Hawaii Oceanography TA, and even had his resume among the documents. A college friend, who had been Apple "since the II series" assisted me on upgrades. Over time, eBay became my Mac parts hunting ground. The 800K floppy drive went first, replaced by a 1.44MB unit to read current HD floppies. Next, a 540MB HDD, and, eventually, a 32MB RAM module and software that turned it into a (sorta) Mac SE/30 that was a step or two away from being "Internet ready." That led to a PowerBook 1400cs and to a 2012 MacBook Pro.;)

    Hey Ken – today I am a collector of old apples but I do have a horror story from when I was gifted a Mac SE about 20 years ago.
    I won't type it all out unless someone wants to hear it but its bad and I am ashamed of myself, to this day.

    Now I have to drag both of my old MacPluses out of the basement. I’ll be there for days with the dog. We’ll both be up for days eating only cheese sandwiches for sustenance. Look what you’ve done. I hope you’re proud of yourself!

    Story time. I don't remember how it came about but somebody gave me an SE I had to floppy disks an extra no hard drive it was a little hard to get used to the whole click and hold thing but once again I book I went back and went oh a lot of this design navigation transfers quite nicely. I tried getting a modem for it although I stumbled across what had phone jacks and a resistor in an RJ-11 connector turns out wasn't a modem it was a serial type network adapter only learned about that years later, I picked it up at a thrift store. I decided to give it to her friend and they informed me that there was a internal connection for a hard drive that I never knew about. I decided to keep the external hard drive enclosure and drive and someday I will pull the SCSI drive out and try and read it again. I really did fall in love with 3-D tic-tac-toe and the art program I don't know but it was for a drawing kind of like MS paint. The enclosure got slightly modified into a 5 1/4 bay optical drive and then subsequently I received a recycled FireWire IDE Interface board that I managed to attach to the back turning it into an external DVD drive.
    The interface board came out of a automatic CD Burning/ labeling system that broke. Oh yeah and I was really annoyed by the 800kb floppy drives it was literally not compatible with anything… put a Windows disk in not formatted, format it and then Windows goes it's not formatted, take it over to a Mac it can't read it either.

    I remember we bought a SE and Plus for $50 on eBay ($25 a piece) as one sale to replace my dad's original Plus, both were in pristine condition. Now you can't find a working SE or Plus for less than $160 for the one machine. I still have both

    Eternities ago we got Amiga 500 and C64, but the more "modern" first computer almost became a used Mac SE of some form. Pretty sure the tiny built in screen warded me off. Instead ended up with a bunch of 286 parts that turned into a 4 megabyte RAM 16mhz 286 that lasted me until 1998. Wonder how things would have ended up with an SE instead. Really came to appreciate the compactness later on in life, laptops instead of desktops.
