Another good use for a 6200 is as a doorstop.

Seriously though, I have a TV tuner card in my 6360. Loved having that there when I lived alone in a small apartment. Plus it was nice to be able to watch TV in a window while surfing the web in a separate window.

Tried routing my Nintendo 64 through there back in the day, but there is a delay between the video signal and being displayed on the screen which made it impossible to play on. (The delay is only a second or so, but long enough to screw with your video gaming...)

Too bad a lot of the compatible systems, the 5200, 5300, 6200, and 6300, are just plain awful computers in every regard other than the TV system. However, if you get a 6500 or something with the TV system, then its pretty sweet.

Yeah, but that's why I bought the 6360 back in the day. It has the 6200/6300 case and features, but it was built on the 6400 motherboard, which later became the 6500/TAM motherboard.

Love that 6360.

Exactly, not to be confused with 6300.

Your all so mean... hurting my performa's feelings! Just kidding... but I do love that machine to death, and with 48 mb of ram it's really not that bad as long as i'm not on the internet (which it just does ok on). I've never actually used a system 7 machine that wasn't considered a limited mac... LC II, powermac 5260/100, my performa. The only thing I would be worried about with the tv is the thousands of colors and the sound the fan makes.
