I'm selling my collection of rare Apple Computers. The machine below is a real treat!



The computer that changed the world!  An original MACINTOSH (aka Macintosh 128k).

SIGNED - Original Working 1984 Macintosh 128k M0001 - Not Upgraded!
Includes Original Keyboard, Mouse, Original 400k Floppy Drive, Genuine 128k Memory!
Also includes 6 reproduction 1984 Macintosh System Disks including MacPaint, MacWrite, System Disk, Macintosh Guided Tour, MacWrite and MacPaint A Guided Tour, and System and MacWrite MacPaint Backup disk!

This Macintosh has been professionally cleaned, inspected, tested, and serviced to ensure you recieve a fully functional 1984 Macintosh 128k!  Many of these you see will have non functioning disk drives or keyboards.  Not this one!  The computer has been fully inspected, tested, serviced and cleaned!

This machine is a very special Macintosh 128k with the signatures of the design team on the inside of the case!

To explain how special this machine truely is, here's a little background on the Apple Macintosh itself:

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.)

This item has been tested working and will be shipped fully insured to guarantee you recieve an incredibly rare, fully functional Apple Macintosh!

Additional Pictures:


  




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 Macintosh 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.




Your original Macintosh 1984 (128k) was the 5122th Mac manufactured during the 20th week of 1984 in Fremont, California, USA.




The original keyboard looks fantastic and has been tested and works perfectly!













The mouse also looks fantastic!  It has been tested and works perectly!










The original 400k floppy still works perfectly and will auto eject just fine!


 
The screen is crisp and clear!
