    In addition to this harrowing hardware, the winner will also become the proud owner of some Mac memorabilia. Its original box, manual, an invoice, and a letter to the first owner from Jobs himself are included – typed on lined notebook paper.

    From such humble beginnings...:D

    Wow a letter?
    That is insane xD, I mean who on earth write letters with their hand to their customers (I know it was the beginning) :D
    Anyway not a fan of Apple, but their products are good xD

    Interesting article. Thanks for posting it.

    I once owned a very early Apple // -- a tinkerer's delight.

    To think.... I used to scrap most Apple hardware I came across , working hardware or not , as it could not "do" (perform in a way) anything that people were interested in, and I wasn't interested myself in stacking the oldest models myself. It is possible though that I still got one or two Apple computers laying around burried somewhere (honestly can't remember) but I am relatively sure that it will be nothing nearly that old.
