    I was digging thru the junk and stumbled across this never opened, original Apple Extended Keyboard II.

    Wondering what I should do with it. Do these have high (or any) value these days?

    here are some pictures. :)

    Second best keyboard ever, after the IBM of course.

    Doesn't have much value. I still have one for my Mac SE.

    yes the IBM kb is awesome. I still have that connected to my old PC.

    So basically it's not worth the time/effort to put this up on ebay?

    I guess it's time to open my iMate then :)

    thanks!

    Eh, not worth too much. I have an Extended Keyboard II still sealed in box somewhere in my basement. (And a still-boxed-but-not-sealed Apple Adjustable Keyboard.)

    Not shabby at all! There are a lot of collectors (myself included) that'll pay a premium for mint condition equipment - especially now that so much from that era is yellowed or beat up these days. Not sure that I'd drop a hundred on a keyboard, but this just goes to show you that people like that are out there.

    sell it to gruber?

    are you a daringfireball.com fan? I believe the Extended Keyboard II is John Gruber's favorite keyboard

    maybe you can sell yours to him? seriously

    I have to agree this was one of the best keyboards ever
