lucky Jim!!
YES: DO the hinge repair to prevent loss of display! (instructions in list archives, at least)—maybe someone can still do it for you if you need…

It looks like the seal was broken on the plastic bag containing the eMate, but it also looks like the original bag the eMate was sold in. I have a original power adapter and two other cables, a Newton Serial Cable for Windows-based computers and an Apple System/Peripheral-8 Cable also in a plastic bag. I didn’t think there were original, never used complete sets of this 1997 Apple products still around.
