The second acquisition of my recently established vintage computer collection is an Apple PowerBook 170, donated to me by a coworker.

The original power supply was shot, and the NiCd battery had leaked, but I was able to find an alternate power supply and boot it up! Unfortunately, the internal SCSI 40MB drive is no longer recognized by the system, so I’ll need to find an alternative mass storage device (or just stick with the 3.5″ 800K disks that my friends have shared with me).
