For those of you that ordered a ATXT USB Keys keyboard converter, all have been shipped.  I do have a few extra if anyone want's one let me know and we can discuss.

Do they sell a TI to PS2 or USB device so we can use USB or PS2 keyboards for TI?

 

I am putting my TI into a G5 Case and need one.

 

Thanks.

 

Power Mac G5 or iMac G5 case? Would be cool in the iMac G5 case with F18A powering the LCD. I'm guessing Power Mac case since you're probably putting the PEB guts inside too?

Yea as grandkids and Daughter plus my wife moved to Idaho is now back and  that put entire TI in a G5 PowerMac project got stuffed in attic.

Yea I know I have a weird set of relationships, and no room in house as I got moved to dining room out of my computer room that is now my daughters room.

Grandkids are in old Daughters room.

I mean really I have no space left for much of anything, totally stuck with Emulation for TI now.

 

Also my Intel Mac Pro died so now down to a laptop and a HP desktop.

Have to get by on just these.

Hey RXB,

Funny thing: I recently acquired the sidecars: memory expansion, rs232, disk controller. My system is on a big drafting desk and honestly, I find the sidecars much less intrusive than the PEB. The sidecars are also MUCH lighter than the PEB. I hooked things up just for kicks and decided to put my PEB (and RS-232 sidecar) in the closet. Never liked my monitor way atop that thing since I have a standing desk arrangement. Also, no firehouse kludge-cable to muck things up.

That damn cable...

Different strokes...

I know it's heresy, but I can't help but find that Apple II design just beautiful in its simplicity. Which is why I keep one :)

I feel that way about the TRS-80 Model III, but sadly I have no where left to put one.

Yeah, I had a TRS-80 model 4 which I loved but ended up selling because of space issues. It's just monstrous in size...

Mine sits idle, cover on.

I have a bad drive and need a GOTEK or a FREHD or something.

FreHD is good, so is the MISE.

 

Frehd:

Pros: cheaper, hd emulation

Cons: less featured, no tcpip or joystick or vga,  has trouble with newer sd cards

 

MISE: 

Pros: more featured can telnet from your trs80 to bbs's etc..  run ftp server, hd emulation

Cons: price

 

Gotek: 

Pros: floppy disk emulation, price

Cons: no hd emulation or other features

 

Personally I went with all of the above.. I have a Frehd on my model 1, model 3 and my model 4p, a gotek on the 3 also.. and a m3se on my model 4..

Hi Shift838, finally might get a chance to hook up my GBSVGA GENIE AVPC rig on my SNUG system this weekend. It's been a while since I got these parts and I've forgotten if there was a site setup with the doc for hooking this up? Were docs shipped with the parts or is there a .pdf or doc site? Thanks.

The Apple ][ removable Velcro lid is brilliant. It’s especially great considering it’s on a first-gen system. Jobs does deserve credit here.
