    Well the good news is that for the compact macs, the CPU speed doesn't matter. The SE will max out at 4mb of ram and I recommend system 6.0.4. You can run system 7 but you will be fighting to...

    I'm afraid you may be too late.

    Per channel, yes. I don't think I've ever seen a configuration that only had just one channel. Most typically had three or four and my (basketcase) 720 has sixteen channels, so it can handle a LOT of...

    I use that same version of the parallel tester, albeit I externally power it from the USB port. Unless China is shipping variants in the same layout that's not a good sign.
