For System 7.0 - 7.6
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

A rolling, somewhat interactive multimedia demo of Apple's latest (1996) PowerBook: The PowerBook 1400. It has some easy listening music loops, plus buttons to click and some QuickTime VR to view. Apple used Macromedia Director 4 to create this Tour.

MD5 checksum & filename: 933c06e981211994bdbe3ce393c59982 *pb-1400-demo.sit

Architecture: 68k PPC

FAT, 68k & PPC, SSW 7.1 or newer.
Optimised for an 800x600 display (same as the new PB 1400) Looks crappy on less than this, demo moves to top left corner of display if set to a higher than 800x600 display, but is still watchable.

Runs OK in Basilisk II & SheepShaver.

This ran pretty nicely in Classic MacOS 9.2 on my iMac running 10.4.11. Ran in the upper left corner of the screen but was fully functional including playing the movie file.

@wazeem: Yes, that port is for optional internal device cards, such as external video, or ethernet and others.

Although with my 1400, I used the PCMCIA slot for ethernet - I had a Dell ethernet card, some guy had written a Mac driver for it that made it work with the PB 1400. It worked great, albeit at 10 Mbit.

Thanks for confirming the demo is OK on 8.x OS's.

yup this runs on a PB1400 running OS 8.6 The demo says, there is an option for a built-in ethernet port where the external video port fits. Does anyone know about this?
