Macintosh SE

The Macintosh SE is a personal computer designed and sold by Apple Computer, Inc. from March 1987 to October 1990. It marked a significant improvement on the Macintosh Plus design and was introduced by Apple at the same time as the Macintosh II; the SE retains the same Compact Macintosh form factor as the original Macintosh computer introduced three years earlier and uses the same design language used by the Macintosh II. An enhanced model, the SE/30 was introduced in January 1989; the Macintosh SE was updated in August 1989 to include a SuperDrive, with this updated version being called the "Macintosh SE FDHD" and the "Macintosh SE SuperDrive". The Macintosh SE was replaced with the Macintosh Classic, a similar model which retained the same central processing unit and form factor, but at a lower price point; the Macintosh SE was introduced at the AppleWorld conference in Los Angeles on March 2, 1987. The "SE" is an acronym for "System Expansion", its notable new features, compared to its similar predecessor, the Macintosh Plus, were: First compact Macintosh with an internal drive bay for a hard disk or a second floppy drive.

First compact Macintosh. First Macintosh to support the Apple Desktop Bus only available on the Apple IIGS, for keyboard and mouse connections. Improved SCSI support with a standard 50-pin internal SCSI connector. Better reliability and longer life expectancy due to the addition of a cooling fan. Upgraded video circuitry that results in a lower percentage of CPU time being spent drawing the screen. In practice this results in a 10-20 percent performance improvement. Additional fonts and kerning routines in the Toolbox ROM Disk First Aid is included on the system diskThe SE and Macintosh II were the first Apple computers since the Apple I to be sold without a keyboard. Instead the customer was offered the choice of the new ADB Apple Keyboard or the Apple Extended Keyboard. Apple produced ten SEs with transparent cases as prototypes for promotional employees, they are rare and command a premium price for collectors. The Macintosh SE shipped with System 4.0 and Finder 5.4. The README file included with the installation disks for the SE and II is the first place Apple used the term "Macintosh System Software", after 1998 these two versions were retroactively given the name "Macintosh System Software 2.0.1".

Processor: Motorola 68000, 8 MHz, with an 8 MHz system bus and a 16-bit data path RAM: The SE came with 1 MB of RAM as standard, is expandable to 4 MB. The logic board has four 30-pin SIMM slots. Video: The built-in 512x342 monochrome screen uses 21,888 bytes of main memory as video memory. Storage: The SE can accommodate either one or two floppy drives, or a floppy drive and a hard drive. After-market brackets were designed to allow the SE to accommodate two floppy drives as well as a hard drive, however it was not a configuration supported by Apple. In addition an external floppy disk drive may be connected, making the SE the only Macintosh besides the Macintosh Portable which could support three floppy drives, though its increased storage, RAM capacity and optional internal hard drive rendered the external drives less of a necessity than for its predecessors. Single-floppy SE models featured a drive-access light in the spot where the second floppy drive would be. Hard-drive equipped models came with a 20 MB SCSI hard disk.

Battery: Soldered into the logic board is a 3.6 V 1/2AA lithium battery, which must be present in order for basic settings to persist between power cycles. Macintosh SE machines which have sat for a long time have experienced battery corrosion and leakage, resulting in a damaged case and logic board. Expansion: A Processor Direct Slot on the logic board allows for expansion cards, such as accelerators, to be installed; the SE can be upgraded to more than 5 MB with the MicroMac accelerators. In the past other accelerators were available such as the Sonnet Allegro. Since installing a card required opening the computer's case and exposing the user to high voltages from the internal CRT, Apple recommended that only authorized Apple dealers install the cards. Upgrades: After Apple introduced the Macintosh SE/30 in January, 1989, a logic board upgrade was sold by Apple dealers as a high-cost upgrade for the SE, consisting of a new SE/30 motherboard, case front and internal chassis to accommodate the upgrade components.

Easter egg: The Macintosh SE ROM size increased from 64 KB in the original Mac and 128 KB in the Mac Plus to 256 KB, which allowed the development team to include an Easter Egg hidden in the ROMs. By jumping to address 0x41D89A or reading from the ROM chips it is possible to display the four images of the engineering team. Introduced March 2, 1987: Macintosh SEIntroduced August 1, 1989: Macintosh SE FDHD: Includes the new SuperDrive, a floppy disk drive that can handle 1.4 MB High Density floppy disks. FDHD is an acronym for "Floppy Disk High Density". High-density floppies would become the de facto standard on both the Macintosh and PC computers from on. An upgrade kit was sold for the original Macintosh SE which included new ROM chips and a new disk controller chip, to replace the originals. Macintosh SE 1/20: The name of the Macintosh SE FDHD with a 20 MB HD

DeMarco–Becket Memorial Trophy

The DeMarco–Becket Memorial Trophy is a Canadian Football League trophy. It is awarded to the player selected as the outstanding lineman in the West Division; the trophy was donated by the families of Mel Becket and Mario DeMarco, who were two prominent Saskatchewan Roughriders players who were victims of the Mount Slesse aircraft disaster on December 9, 1956. Since 1974 this trophy has been awarded to the Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman in the West Division. Either the winner of this trophy or the winner of the Leo Dandurand Trophy will receive the Canadian Football League Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award. Prior to 1974 the CFL's Most Outstanding Lineman Award was awarded to both outstanding defensive players and outstanding linemen in the West Division, this award was different from the DeMarco–Becket Memorial Trophy. In 1995, during the American Expansion, this trophy was given to the North Division's Most Outstanding Lineman. CFL Publications: 2011 Facts, Figures & Records
