    Okay, now this is very odd... There are 3 Apple 1's on eBay, how can this be? I saw one before and it sold for over $50,000 and people say there is probally less then ten, so HOW can there be three on eBay right now:confused:

    The thing is they actually are reproductions!

    Yes, but how can it look exactly like the original the whole board? Vincent's look more basic, where can I find on the net ones exactly like those?

    I can also get you a deal on some Rolex watches, if you are interested.... some of those sell for 10's of thousands too, but you can get my genuine authentic reproduction for only $999*.



    *($89.95 each if you buy three)

    Oh, I don't think supplying pictures would be a problem either - that's not really the point... ;)

    $30,000, huh? Well, here's hoping my Apple //e is worth that much someday....

    Thanks! I'm sure people said the exact same thing 25 years ago to people who had Apple 1s. :p Hindsight is 20/20 and you can never predict the future. :cool:

    That is way too cool, and cheap! I might just have to buy one of them to muck around with.

    thats very true, but there was so many appleIIe's made and so many floating around out there( i have 4 myself) that it would have to be a rare model or have some rare upgrade cards in it to be worth something

    Yeah, I know, I was just saying... :eek: ;) Maybe it won't be worth $30K, but hopefully it'll be worth more than was initially paid for it someday, which was $5K at the time in 1983! :eek: ;)

    Yes, An original would be close to $30,000 but alas those are not real.
