I'm now enjoying the SE that I picked up yesterday. I have a CD
burner installed on it and am figuring out just what software will
run on it. It has an Ethernet card, so I plan on fetching some of
the things suitable for the machine and burning to CD. It came
with OS 7.1 installed on it, and I've preserved that. I
'upgraded' to an Apple 250M hard drive, as I could see the 20
megger being completely filled up almost immediately (it already
was, as received). It's really nice that you can just format and
copy over entire drives on the Mac. I plugged in an external SCSI
drive and 'copied over' the entire 20 Meg original drive, then
replaced the internal drive with an Apple 250, then booted from
the external drive and copied it's contents over to the new
I'm right now in the process of installing a PDP-8 Simulator on it
from a shareware CD I got years ago.
