Apple Mac Plus


Mac Plus


The Apple Mac Plus was one of the first of the Macintosh series. It was introduced in the mid-eighties, namely 1986 and sold until 1990. Mine dates back to the production year 1987 and therefore is nearly as old as my Atari ST. It sports the same CPU as the ST, a Motorola 68000 running at 8 MHz. No internal hard drive, but an external second floppy disc drive for DD floppy disks with 720kB. Thanks to the SCSI port, my Mac Plus is extended with a ZIP drive as a sort of a hard drive and with the SCSI2Ethernet adapter that allowed me to access my NAS via AppleShare.
