The Macintosh Plus computer is the third model in the Macintosh line, introduced on January 16, 1986, two years after the original Macintosh and a little more than a year after the Macintosh 512K, with a price tag of US$2599. As an evolutionary improvement over the 512K, it shipped with 1 MB of RAM standard, expandable to 4 MB, and an external SCSI peripheral bus, among smaller improvements. It originally had the same generally beige-colored case as the original Macintosh (“Pantone453″), but in 1987, the case color was changed to the long-lived, warm gray “Platinum” color. It is the earliest Macintosh model able to run System 7 OS.

I got this computer from Bucharest, it had no motherboard and no power supply. After 2 months of intensive searches on the internet I found a power supply and a mobo. The Computer is now of the Cluj Computer Museum and it is in working condition.
At this point I had not have the opportunity to take some photos with my Mac but I picked some from the internet.
