Hello all,

This is the mac I got at the tip, luckily its in great condition, all complete.

It works perfectly, and has Mac OS 8.

You can see what components it has from the rear view. I think its an 800mb hard drive, and I think 16mb RAM.

What do you guys think its worth?

It's just optional add-in cards that enable those Macs to be able to watch TV and connect AV equipment.

It would boost the value, and the entertainment value. The All-in-one Performas handle the two AV/TV cards very well. Along with System 7.6.1

I'd say 40-55 dollars (USD).

About 31-43 Euros.

I cannot sell the card to you if you are planning on reselling.. I watch tv on mine just fine with a converter box

I would re-purpose this as a small media center, the Apple TV tuners aren't that bad, neither are the FM tuners. I know since the 20th Anniversary Mac Prototype I have is great quality compared to the XClaim VR128 I have.

No prob.

For TV I prefer using a big flat screen! lol
