    For all you macrumors, extreme mac collectors with deep pockets, here's your chance to own an investment grade Apple 1 computer.

    The auction is limited to prequalified bidders only.

    Apple 1 on eBay
    I think, myself and Steve Jobs are the only ones prequalifed so far. (I'm on the bid list because I won the seller's original production run (serial # 1-427) Apple II.

    My first production run Apple II (sorry Steve, bidding is over on this! ;) )

    Sad that that guy has to liquidate all of his possesions. That one was a real keeper. I see this thing going to somebody with alot of money and a strong yearning for Apple collectibles. For how much I doubt can be predicted...

    If I'm not mistaken, I saw this listed on ebay once before with no takers.

    Antique Apple

    Geez... and I thought my 1984 Mac Classic SE was an antique!
    :p

    Even worse was the old Atari that came with notice card - "Congratulations - your Atari now comes with 128K of memory" !!
    :eek:

    :D

    Just to be clear, there is no such thing as a 1984 Mac Classic SE.
    There was a 1984 Mac 128K.
    There was a 1987 Mac SE.
    There was a 1990 Mac Classic.
    There was no 1984 Mac Classic SE.

    OK, my antiques are mixed up

    Mac Classic, yes.
    Mac SE, yes. Could've sworn that one came out earlier though...

    Damn, now I really feel old.
    :p

    In no way, shape or form would I ever be qualified to bid on this, but I do have a question...

    The seller says:
    How is this possible? Doesn't the sound out on new machines just do sound out and nothing more? Is there some sort of translator program that would make this happen? I don't get this at all... Anyone know?

    Apple should go back to wood. Mmmmm wood PowerBooks. Heat dissipation would be a ***** though. :D

    Oh and who in their right mind would pay 20 grand for an Apple 1?!? Prob could get someone to build you one for that amount.
