Click on the above photo for a closer view.

This is a view of the motherboard. Notice the six white slots -- this was the first, and only one of two models (the other being the 9600), to ship with six PCI expansion slots. Most Macs with PCI slots shipped with only 3.

The battery is purple in the bottom of the photo with the 8 ram slots next to it. The processor plugged into the brown slot in the middle of the board.

This is the empty outer case with the processor sitting on top. That is the heat sink on it.

This is the side of the 9500. Notice those cords hanging there -- connections to the SCSI bus for the internal CDROM and hard drives and power to the motherboard.


This case design is very painful to work with. In order to upgrade RAM, the machine has to be disassembled as in the photos. Apple has certainly gotten better with the G3 Blue and White and PowerMac G4 cases.
