    I love the HD sitting on top of it.
    5mB- I remember when I got my first 8mB HD for my //GS.
    I was king of the block for years!

    I never had a chance to use one if these, but I recall when I was a kid and I learned to use an Apple IIe at school, my parents bought a Mac for the family at XMas and I got P.O.ed that it had a GUI. I thought that made it less of a machine, but hey, I was only 9 yrs old or so.

    why is that computer so valuable, apart from its rareness? I dont really understand the point of spending nearly 10 000 for something like that. There is certainly some "romance" but hey. that s quite a lot of money huh?

    first commercial GUI (multitasking too)
    first new idea, direction, architechture away from the Apple // series
    innovative technology WAY ahead of it's time

    the HW is not worth anything at all as far as value. the rarity coupled with it being revolutionary is worth 10K in that condition. with old rich nerds, what do you expect? :) it's on the same level as the apple I and altair 8800 imo.

    Geez, those are going for A LOT.

    I'm gonna hold on to mu iMac 233 now, when I sell it in 10-15 years it will be enough for a car!

    they produced too many of those for them ever to be worth something.

    The Macintosh 128K was an ultra-mass commodity, just like its descendent, iMac. I'm sure there'll be an after-market for them, some time . . .

    For now, just write a text file on it called "The Solution to Cold Fusion," and mention that in a bullet when you put it in the auction loop.

    Big Money.

    P.S., MrMacman -- does your car happen to be an 87 Chrysler Lebaron? Ha ha ha . . . sorry, that one was below the belt.

    the aftermarket on the 128K is still pretty good even after 20 years…

    200 is a far cry from the original 2500 (not including inflation). i predict the same for the iMac.

    True, they probably will be less than their original retail price . . . but the early ones, like that 233, will at least be among the most valuable of their subcategory.

    At least.

    And isn't it more about nostalgia than monetary "worth"? I wouldn't trade my 128k or 512k-e for anything.


    Sincerely Yours,
