THE POWERPC Performa 6116CD
I acquired this Performa 6116CD on Ebay and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was in very good condition. I decided then to leave it as original as possible and limit my upgrades to just RAM and the level 2 cache. Of course, I also gave it a clean install of system OS 8.6, a nubus adapter with Radius 24bit PrecisionColor Pro 2MB video card, and an AAUI to ethernet transciever for network access and the internet. I have found that the iCab browser can work pretty well with some of these older machines. This machine has very good color and both CD ROM and floppy drives work like new. It also sports its original 750MB hard drive.
I am still looking for a 6112CD model from the same series. My very first computer in college was a 6112CD and it was my baby. I was devastated when burglers robbed me of it in 2003, and I compensated by buying and experimenting with no less than 4 machines from the Powerpc 6100 seried on Ebay.
