At the beginning of ownership I didn't notice any performance deficiencies, but eventually I became dissatisfied with
I still managed to make good use of with the help of a light English-version OS and extension manager. I often thought about upgrading it, but didn't expect the performance improvement to be worth the expense. However, after I started using a Power Macintosh 7500/100 at work I lost interest in my old, slow Mac LC.
After several more years I again became interested in the old Macintosh. A friend gave me an LCIII. I took it home and studied which parts I could transplant to the LC, because I really liked the slim appearance of the original LC case.
I found many differences between the two computers. The size of the mother board, the cooling fan and speaker were mounted, and even the chassis itself was different. I moved the LC's floppy diskette drive, cover, and a bolt to the LCIII. Of cource they existed on the LCIII but it was my finicky personality....
STEP1 shows the configuration of my new LC (inside LCIII), which ran programs more quickly.
