You mean it'll work with the older mac's? It has a "normal" (for MAC's) video
cable, and its model number is 1710AV. It has what appears to be
pass-through's for the mouse and for a mike, that funny thing that looks like
the USB symbol but isn't, and a couple of other thingies, but it's only a 16"
diagonal visible (not viewable) screen so I don't think it's supposed to be a
17", though you never know these days.

I'll have to run out and snag a cheap mac and see what it does. I saw a
Quadra 650 or something on that order for $5 earlier today. It had a part of
the front face missing, else I'd have probably looked inside.
