Apple Macintosh LC 475
The AppleColor High-Resolution RGB Monitor, keyboard, and mouse for this system were obtained from a local hard rubbish collection while the system unit with ethernet adapter was purchased for $25 at a swap meet. I also added an extra 8MB of RAM from my pile of parts. The matching 8MB SIMM went into a friend's LC575 that his family still uses.
I got this system with a wiped hard drive and after some failed attempts at using System 7.1 disks that a friend created on his LC 575 from his install cd System 7.5 was installed by downloading the disk images and a network access disk on a pc and transferring them across via a linux box running netatalk.

|The front of the unit features little more than the manual inject floppy drive.|

|Removing the cover exposes all of the internals which includes the drive bays, logic board and power supply.|
