    Yeah Cute.

    Although the 2400c is a little on the (shall we say) big size, for its time it was truely quite a piece of equipment.



    LOL! I remember absolutly craving a PB100 back in Grade 5 (9 years ago)

    ZO: It's the latter. If you have the G3/320 or G3/400 upgrade for the 2400, you can install OS X with the XPostFacto utility (or however else they spell it ). I decided that selling my 2400 to buy an iBook/500 was a safer bet.



    Regarding the 2400 to 12-inch PowerBook comparison pictures, it makes it obvious that the 12-inch is a worthy successor and has taken over the portability throne from the 2400. I'm looking forward to buying a 12-inch of my own later this year.

    There's also a G3/240 upgrade. I believe that's actually the most common.



    However, a friend of mine said he saw those pics at an eBay auction and he said that the auction actually made no mention of a G3 upgrade. Meaning it's possible that he actually installed OS X on the stock 603e processor. Hey, it's possible, just unbelievably slow. I ran OS X on a PowerMac 7500 with a 200 MHz 604e with no L2 cache in it once.

    I'd hate to think just how slow X is on one of those...

    If you look really closely at the screenshot, it looks like the 2400c says "xxx MHz PowerPC G3". According to the XPostFacto docs, you can install OS X 10.0 or 10.1 on 603s and 604s, but 10.2 limits compatibility with the older chipsets. Sounds painful.

    Could <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3402158425&category=46 06" target="_blank">this</a> be it, with a 320MHz G3. It shows a similar photo, but doesn't say the machine for sale is the same machine as in the photo. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    You can run Mac OS X versions before Jaguar on 603 and 604 PCI machines, but not 601s. It's a shame that my Performa 6400's G3 upgrade isn't usable with Mac OS X .

    I agree with Escher. I bought a PowerBook 2400c when they first shipped, and mine still sits on my desk today. I've been waiting for a worthy replacement to it for a while, and seeing those pictures really makes me tempted.



    Actually, it makes me want to put OS X on my 2400c...

    M3D Jack: You're lucky you were able to keep your 2400c. I had to sell my beloved Comet to raise funds for the iBook/500. It had the nice YuPlan green translucent keyboard, upgraded HDD, and was CardBus enabled by MCE. I used it with a Lucent WaveLAN WiFi card and FireWire and USB PC Cards. All I have left of my 2400 are <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/escher/PhotoAlbum6.html"; target="_blank">some pictures</a>. Boohoohoo.
