 I have a card in my 512 which increases memory and gives a SCSI port.
It's called a MacSnap by Dove computer, dated 1985. It actually consists of
2 cards. One contains the memory chips aand circuitry and the other has
the SCSI socket and also 2 large chips labelled upper and lower ROMs. I'm
even able to boot off the external HDD.
