That is a very cool machine. I wonder if they'll ever do anything like it again?

Also, I was wondering if anyone knew how many of these things were made?

the "buy it now" option is $715 though, so the reserve is going to be near that, if not exactly that.

As far as macs go, this belongs in a museum. I don't know how really useful it would be. For $700, I'd rather buy a cube.

i wish that apple would make some cool designs loike that again. it's like a concep car, only a computer. it looks way ahead of it's time, and that's what i like about it.

It looks like the specs are better than my iTang.
Neat, but I have more use for a more recent iMac.

Did you bid?

Eniregat,

If you meant me in your last post, no, I did not bid (too expensive for this starving artist). I did, however, place a bid on THIS unique Apple product . . .

Thats nice, I was gonna out-bid you, but then you send the link to me, so I can't do that now can I?

bennetsaysargh,

I'll probably turn it on. I'm imagining it somewhere amidst my collection, LEDs glowing red, the color of life and energy.

I have a fairly substantial array, including the whole Mac-128k through Mac SE/30 lineup, and one NeXT Cube with its daughter, the NeXT station. The Cube's mobo is 12" by 12"! And it glows in the dark!

Ha ha . . . anyway, thanks a lot for your support. :)


Sincerely Yours,


City of Glass

11,000 was the number that I read somewhere. Of course, I live in Japan so there are very few. Most are still in the U.S. I'm guessing.

$700 for a TAM.. it doesn't pay to be a collector anywhere else but in the U.S. .. :-P

Apple's 30th Anniversary will be coming in a few years, I wonder if they have anything up their collective sleeves?

Hey people,
The 20th anniv mac is worth $$$ just for those awesome sounding Bose speakers which alone must be worth at least $600 if not more.

Think of it --- it's the ultimate home MP3 machine!
Just take all the other software off and fill it up with TUNES!!

That's what I do. I put in a PCI 10/100 Ethernet card and toss over mp3s from my TiBook into WinAmp and it works great. :)

Does it worry anyone else that his ~$10,000 TAM is sitting next to a drill press?:)

I thought we got rid of Citizen Sane aka City of Glass...

Why did somebody have to drag up this dead thread?

He was selling so much stuff and his story and name kept changing (but the email address tripped him up) that he smelled fishy, along with those idiotic ramblings.

I wouldn't worry about the machine
