but in case it wasn't clear to the OP, the Apple II card only works in LCs, not the SE/30.

I was talking about the LC II; but in fact, never thought about the Apple IIe card and the SE/30 compatibility; so I suppose this time size does matter, right?

That's going to have a significant performance impact.

Wow, according some benches, it's nearly doubling the speed of the LC. Seems that the SE/30 it's a nice machine...
Anyway, I've seen that the screen resolution is a big drawback, you need a dirty hack in the monitor to get 640x480 pixels and be able to run modern software.

Size has nothing to do with it, the SE/30 and the LC II use completely different slots. They're incompatible.

I personally like the SE/30. Mainly because its the fastest B&W compact there is. And mine has the ethernet. Now, the CC runs a close second if you put an LC550 board in it.
