To explain how special this machine truely is, here's a little
background on the Apple Macintosh itself:
This item has been tested
and will be shipped fully insured to guarantee you recieve an
incredibly rare, fully functional Apple Macintosh!
The Macintosh was introduced by the now famous US$1.5 million
television commercial by Ridley Scott, "1984", that most notably aired
on CBS during the third quarter of Super Bowl XVIII on January 22,
1984. This Macintosh didn't have a model number - it was simply the
Macintosh. There was no name on the front. Early 128Ks simply said
"Macintosh" on the back, while later ones were marked "Macintosh 128K"
to distinguish them from the later Macintosh 512K.
Equipped with 128 KB RAM, 64 KB ROM, a 3.5" 400 KB floppy drive, a
1-bit 512 x 342 pixel b&w monitor, a mouse, and a couple
applications (MacWrite and MacPaint), the Macintosh was destined to
change the face of computing forever - it not only created the Mac look
and feel, it also inspired forthcoming versions of Microsoft Windows
and several other windowing interfaces.
The Macintosh had twice as much memory as the popular Commodore 64, put
2.5 times as much data on a floppy disk as the IBM PC's single-sided
5.25" disk, included two serial ports (one which could be used for
networking at the then-incredible speed of 230.4 kbps), and a totally
graphical operating system, all packed into the cutest, friendliest
package the computer industry had yet seen. Apple sold 70,000 during
its first 100 days on the market.
Ports on the rear of the Mac 128KIf you didn't crave a lot of speed,
you could even add a serial hard drive. In fact, Apple's argument for a
closed box (no slots) was that the high speed serial port was fast
enough for anything you might want to add to the Macintosh - this was
certainly not true for hard drives.
The Macintosh was supplemented by the 512K in October. (It's commonly
told that the original Macintosh would have had 256 KB of memory if RAM
prices hadn't been so high.)
You get four REPRODUCTION system software disks that were originally
packaged with this 1984 Macintosh when it was sold new. These are
incredibly hard to find and many are dirty, discolored, and no longer
function. They look almost identical to the original ones and
really couldn't be differentiated unless held right next to a genuine
one. It's adds a real nice touch to the Macintosh! The
disks are new reproductions copied straight from the originals and work
perfectly! (In case your are wondering Apple released all this
software into public domain over 15 years ago) You can use this
right out of the box just like in 1984 when it was sold new!
This original Macintosh 128k's case is in fantastic condition!
Just look at how nice this computer is!
This computer is all original!
ComputerCraft was a computer store in 1984. They put their badge
on the computer just like a car dealer would do putting a badge on a
car's trunk. This can be removed if you wish, but we thought we'd
leave it on to give the computer some true character!
Here's something you can appreciate! The battery area looks
fantastic! No acid to be found here!
The top looks fantastic!
Original programmer's switch is included!
Another ComputerCraft sticker on the bottom of the computer. It
can be removed but I chose to leave it on.
