The iMac now has an SSD in it and it flies. I may make a video on how to change out the hard drive on a 2008 iMac so watch this space. πŸ™‚


Here’s a fab little machine found on Facebook by Faye (a friend of mac-mann). I’ve upgraded it to El Capitan and ordered some more memory to help it run smoothly.

Paper Muncher

The latest addition is a LaserWriter 16/600 with ethernet ! Both PC’s and MAC’s can now print. I picked this up from Chesterfield on Friday and got it home yesterday. Fired it up and it worked first go! I have left the network name as Paper Muncher and max’ed out the RAM to turn on photo grade.

5K baby

Here is the latest addition to the Mac idiots collection. A power Mac with Xeon 2.8GHz and 4 cores. I intend this to be my daily machine and powerful enough to encode 4k video. I have already installed macOS high Sierra on it using the tools here:Β http://dosdude1.com/highsierra/

Quadra 650

Greg has brought in his pristine (still has the box) Mac Quadra…Couple of hickups as it has been in storage but a new PRAM battery should fix that. πŸ™‚
