Macintosh 512Ke Enhanced With Hard Disk 20




Introduced in April 1986 at $1999, the 512Ke is an enhanced version of the 512K. Upgrades include a 128KB ROM and a double sided 3.5″ 800K Disk Drive. Introduced after the Macintosh Plus, this was a lower cost computer, and like the 512K, the memory was not upgradeable although there were third party solutions.

It features an 8 MHz Motorola 68000 processor, 512K of RAM or memory, 128KB ROM, and an 800k 3.5″ disk drive in a beige all-in-one compact case with a 9″ monochrome display (512 x 342 pixels). It also came with a keyboard and mouse. Ports include DB-9 mouse, printer and external modem ports, a DB-19 external disk drive port, and a speaker port. The keyboard cable plugs into the front.

This 512Ke looks good and works great! The left side has a scratch as seen in the photos. It does come with a power cable, keyboard, keyboard cable and mouse. Also includes is a Hard Disk 20 (and power cable), the first hard drive for a Mac! 20 megs of storage! It is running System 6.0.7 and has some apps (they haven’t been fully tested with 512K, the drive originally was used with a Plus). Also included (not pictured) is a non original Hard Disk 20 utility/start up and System 3.2 disks.
