Hell, this is going to be fun.
What you see is a humble PowerBook 1400c/166
Already the processor has been upgraded to Sonnet G3/400 MHz
Wifi card will come, along with 10GB harddrive – resulting fully functional machine equipped with MacOS 9.1, modern Opera browser allowing to access most of the webpages (including Facebook) and IMAP supporting email client. What more do you really need?
After several years – boing!
What a sound! It’s alive, it’s alive again!

RAM expansion beyond 1 MB requires Macintosh Classic 1 MB Memory Expansion Card, which has 1 MB of additional RAM, and two SIMM connectors.
The Classic was more or less a reissue of the Mac Plus, and was hampered by its 8 MHz 68000 processor. It shipped in a newly designed case and had a large 512 kB ROM, from which it could boot. It also included the 1.4 MB “SuperDrive” floppy drive. It was available in two configurations: the low end version, with 1 MB of RAM (No hard drive) was $999 (making it the first sub-$1000 Mac), and the higher-end version, with 2 MB of RAM and a 40 MB hard drive was $1499.
