    Default MAc SE/8mhz - what games it can run ?

    Hi, people ! I'm abought to buy an SE which is rare and expensive here) What good games it can run with 8mhz - like Prince of Persia or Grand Prix Circuit, TEst Drive or it's too slow even for it ?
    Maybe if I buy it I will use it for expos to show to "modern people" ...)

    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 conserve ram.
    Your big limiting factor will be the black and white display. Most games and software will dither down but some games specifically want color.

    Don't forget mobygames, which can help determine what can run as well: https://www.mobygames.com/attribute/...,0/p,74/so,1a/

    I'd say anything from 1990 or earlier should work.
