Expanding a PowerBook

Ah, the choices one must make. I find it so hard to pick up the PowerBook and leave home without stuffing it with every conceivable application I just might have a use for, even ones I haven't used for months

DeskWriter C Driver Grump

Santa kindly left a DeskWriter C under my tree so I'll be able to enlighten future undergraduates with color transparencies. But I found a few problems with the current DeskWriter C printer drivers

PowerBook 170 Review

My initial reaction to the PowerBook 170 was WOW! So, I thought I might use it for a couple of weeks before writing down my impressions. Now that I've used the PowerBook 170 long enough for the initial dazzle to wear off, my considered impression is WOW! One of the first things I did was run a Speedometer comparison of the PowerBook 170 and the IIci (with cache card)

Quadra Impressions

I have been salivating over the idea of a 68040 Macintosh for nearly two years. I've saved my nickels and dimes and must have been good because "Christmas" arrived yesterday in the form of a Quadra 700 with 4 MB and a 160 MB hard drive! The local stores don't even have demo models yet, so somebody up there must like me. I have one immediate gripe (not with the Quadra, it is marvelous!)
