    So what is the point? it dont work, dont run and takes up space. Plus its ugly. Tell me who is gonna "collect" this? Strange to me to think someone really wants it as much as you want to get rid of it for profit.

    Sdashiki: Well, there are people that collect such things (I got $200 for a corporate sale from Apple), I got $270 for a MacTV, many other examples... I think it is just a few collectors though but they fight each other for the rare stuff. I'll post some pictures of a Prototype Apple Stock Certifacte I found too (FRAMED w/ Plaque!)... Its amazing at least for fun to see how much this stuff sells for, its really fun to watch... Let me use a good example, say I had a G5 Prototype and it was uglier then dirt, and did not work (nor would it ever), would you want it?

    Chundles: No, but I've enough probable cause for Apple to search my home :D

    Sly: I found out from other people you are right there was three Apple Prototypes for the settop box (like the one you have a picture of) the STB1, STB2, and STB3... But I'm glad I've the first proto

    Photo 6 on the auction is of a completely different motherboard -- an LCII or III or 475.

    It's going for so cheap. But, it seems like junk anyways? What would someone do with it?
