Redditor gets a fully working Macintosh SE from Craiglist with a dirty secret (NSFW)

A redditor hit a jackpot when he bought an old late 80s Apple Macintosh upgraded with more RAM and Ethernet card. The  wowbobwow was buying the machine because the 80s Apple Macintosh SE looked good and was running perfectly.

Little did he know that he would find something surprising on the old Mac. wowbobwow shared his hilarious findings in a very entertaining photo story on imgur.

First, the details of the old Mac. The classic Macintosh SE with CRT monitor has 1MB of RAM, 20MB HDD and runs on a 7.7Ghz Motorola 68000 CPU. For the original owner this was not enough and he upgraded his Macintosh to 2MB RAM. Additionally this classic Apple computer was upgraded with an Ethernet card. The earlier owner also ran a X-10 Home Control System which can control lights, heating and air condition. All in all wowbobwow got a good deal for $3,900.

The bonus, however came in the form of a folder called Playmate folder hidden inside the America Online folder.

Inside the folder is an app called MacPlaymate. App author Mike Saenz developed MacPlaymate in 1986. He described it as “Interactive Erotica for the Mac.” When you launch the app an animated sultry lady called Maxie welcomes you to an intimate adventure. Maxie even thought of a escape route if somebody jumped in when you were playing the Interactive app. He put the ever present Panic button that immediately turned on a spreadsheet instead of the MacPlaymate lady.

See the whole incredible well done photo essay on imgur (NSFW) and join the discussion on reddit (NSFW).

If you are interested in Maxie’s MacPlaymate App, it is available here as .sit file.

wowbobwow reached out to us and his real name is Huxley Dunsany.  Dunsany thanked us for featuring his reddit post on Techworm. Here is his complete email.

Thanks for posting about my Reddit / Imgur album about the old Mac SE I found that had “MacPlaymate” on it – it’s awesome to be featured on TechWorm! I’m honestly flabbergasted at how ‘viral’ this post of mine has gone, but I guess it goes to show – never underestimate the power of combining something nerdy + something nostalgic + something pornographic…
