It has been in storage for about 10 yearswhen it went into storage, it worked perfectly. I started it up the other day, and a photo of the start up screen is included in this listing. The keyboard seems non-operational (worked when it went into storage), however I used the Turbo Mouse to navigate. I opened iTunes and played some musicstill sounds fabulous and no buzz! I can tell that the PRAM battery needs replacement, because the clock needs to be updatedI replaced the original cube-shaped battery with a module that holds three AAA batteries (see upper left of rear photo).The CD disc player works fine and I ran the TAM welcome disc (see photo). It has a working OrangeLink PCI card for FireWire/USB, which is a very rare early release of this cardlater ones with USB 2.0 will not work with this computer. Overall, the system is in very good shape with a few minor blemishes.
The Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (or TAM) came with a PowerPC 603e CPU clocked at 250MHz and a 12.1-inch active matrix LCD display. It also came with a built-in TV and FM tuner so the user could easily flip between computer mode and television, along with a massive Bose.Apple introduced the machine as a way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Apple's first computer, which occurred in April of 1996. At the time, most of Apple's offerings were boring beige boxes, so the TAM's design was especially unique due to its nearly flat, all-in-one nature. Its metallic green-gold paint job. During the TAM's short lifetime, it was only introduced in five countries (USA, Japan, France, Germany, UK), while a handful of machines were sent to Apple Australia. Original Boxes (Outermost Box Shows Wear). Fat Back to Allow for Firewire/USB PCI Card. All Original CDs, Plus More. 2 Remote Controls with Leather Cases. Original Pen and Pencil Set. All Software Available for TAM is on the HardDrive and/or CDs.
