New ARC Addition: Powerbook G3 (Wallstreet)

Thanks to my pal, John, I found a box of goodies on my office chair the other day. Amidst the external ZIP drive, some cables, a couple of uncommon adapters, a cable modem, and other tech tidbits, I also found a working, in decent shape, and very much free laptop for my Apple Retro Collection. (If curious, this is what the Wallstreet looks like closed.) Sure, it’s not the Pismo, but it does have that elegant form that all of the Powerbook G3s had, plenty of plugs in the back, and some worthy resolution/screen size. I’ve been wanting one of these in my collection for awhile now, and was disappointed at the most recent Flea trip to find three of them in deplorable condition — missing keys, gouged screens, etc. I like to think this acquisition is my reward for having to endure such terrible visions of vintage tech abuse last week. So, thank you, John. Your pact has been sealed.
