A super PowerBook 550c for $99.00

Post by ebann »

How it’s nice to live in 2021! Finished my little side project... Fully loaded Mac OS 7.6.1 running on a Acer Chromebook 11 N7 (C731). I just love the attention I get at the local coffee shop while working on some document in Word 6.

That looks wonderful! Could you give us a step-by-step procedure for making it happen? (I know I'm asking you to spend even more time on this, but I think it would be a very popular topic.)

Now you need to deck it out with some rainbow Apple stickers, remove the Intel sticker, and get something to cover up the Acer logo ;)

I did just that for others, even if it is a little convoluted because as I try and retry I sometimes find a better way of doing things and I just write it up on my blog. I need to polish the text a little and leave the miscellaneous or obsolete info at the end. It’s in six parts.

Stick it on the back of the monitor... your choice as to whether you place it so it's upright when open like modern Macs, or upside-down when open like some PowerBooks had :)
