    I'm looking for an Apple Set-Top-Box (think of a cable box) These are hard to find but, I know some of you may have one that your willing to sell or know somewhere I can get one (either on eBay or a web site). I don't think you really get any of them to boot up or function properly. But it would be cool to have one just to tinker with and put it on top of my TV for a cool-ness factor. I can pay via PayPal or a Money Order :D

    Call me crazy but, I'd love to have one :)

    Yes!!

    Thanks for the link! I bought it with some christmas money it was like $50 with shipping but, that ain't bad in my eyes for an Apple prototype/never-released product!!! :p

    Thanks again! :D

    Congrats! I thought about clicking the BIN button, but decided not to. Take some pics of the startup screen, and the insides if you can.
    :)

    Ah, the lore of the "Pippin"....


    I had/might still have one of those. They're really cool in concept, but in real life, it's just System 7 on your TV :(

    After reading some web sites I noticed that it's the luck of the draw wether you can get your machine to boot or not. I might need software or something....or not. I'll look into it, hopefully it'll come before I have to go back to school :p
