Have not tried to boot it! For the Macitosh collector!

Battery:6.5-Volt, 5 amp lead acid (gel type)
Display:10-inch b&w active matrix LCD 640 X 400 pixels

External floppy port Video port
Internal 1.4Meg 3.5-inch floppy drive
Internal 40 MB SCSI hard drive

The Mac Portable is Apple's first portable Macintosh computer. Although there were already PC laptops on the market, few were as fast or powerful. The Portable has a 68000 processor running at 16 MHz, comes with 1 MB RAM which can be expanded to 9 MB RAM, has an optional internal 9600 baud modem, and includes a PDS slot (Processor Direct Slot) for direct access to the system processor. This allows for faster and more powerful expansion cards.
The Portable has an active matrix screen, which updates faster, and doesn't have the blurry effect of other early displays. This new and high-tech screen greatly added to the system price.
Would like to get $50 plus shipping! OBO
