Here is a video of a 6500 booting Mac OS 7.6.1, powering a 23" ACD at it's full 1920 x 1200 resolution... for any classic Mac enthusiast to enjoy...

Now that was impressive - Makes you want to get a weekend project going.

I mean, the kitchen tables not being used for anything.

Hah well.. this was 9 years ago! I don't even have a functioning System 7 machine at this moment ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ maybe I should hunt one down on eBay.

Maybe a new thread for this.. but as its unlikely to be shouted down as off topic.

I'm hopefully going to be scoring a PowerBook 3400c in the very near future.

Spoken to the owner - had it from new, he's an archaeologist and Mac user since the early day - the kit comprises loads of quality add-ons and a custom bag.

Anyway, hopefully I'll have a trip to see it boot up and give it a once over soon.

I had one before but it was somewhat battle damaged by its half-mad, boozy CEO original owner.

My plan will involve sourcing a DVI adapter - if one exists.

Then we'll have a 'screen off.'
