What is the Utimate collectors Macintosh/Apple??
I would have to say Apple I, just because of its rarity and the fact it was apple's first computer.
Runner's up would be:
-20th anniversery mac
-Apple PowerManhatten ( not actually produced, just prototypes around)
-any clear mac/prototype mac
What was that, when I searched on google it came up with nothing.
At $666.66 the apple 1 was the anti-christ, yet it was also the first apple computer so props to the Apple 1
was it really 666.66?
How can the Apple 1 be the "ultimate Apple collectors computer", there were so few made that they are virtually impossible to get hold of ignoring the silly price tag if you find one. It's not like it was even a great computer, Woz threw it together with bits from old experiments he had lying around. It wasn't even the first computer Woz built, not by a long shot. The only thing it has on its side is its the first computer with the Apple name it. Ok I wouldn't say no if someone gave me one, but I don't lust after it. Now the T.A.M. on the other hand is everything a collectable computer should be, which includes obtainable (but not too obtainable) and useable as well as an amazing bit of industrial design in its own right. I want one really badly
It was indeed!

Not sure if this exactly counts, but I can't imagine a more important and collectible Macintosh...er...proto-Macintosh: the Xerox-Parc Alto. Although not technically an Apple product, it certainly is more a 'Macintosh' than the Apple 1.
Can't believe no one knew about this Apple rint ad. Also shows how leet it was with a whole 8Kb of RAM..On a single card Also note the 6502 processor.
From AppleHistory Museum:
Development: ~ 1996 - 1997
Status when discontinued: early testing phase
Type: Power Macintosh 7700 computer
Codename: PowerExpress Manhattan
PowerExpress Manhattan was designed as low-end desktop Power Macintosh computer, the successor of the Power Macintosh 7300. It was housed in the 'Outrigger' case (PowerMac 7500) and featured a G3 processor. However, its specifications were so similar to the Power Macintosh G3 Desktop project, that it was discontinued in favor of the PowerMac G3, which featured a more modern mainboard design.
i guess you could say it would be apart of the Beige G3's history in some way. the Beige G3 was orignal supost to use a 604e cpu at first before they switched to the G3 cpu as its main cpu. but if you look on ones mobo next to the zif cpu you will see where the socket for the 604e cpu was supost to be.
i would not know what would be the ultamate Mac really. but if i was to say anything i would have to say TAM also. maybe one of the proto Mac's since there is allot of diffrent model's it would be hard to tell what one.
Apple I. So rare, so pricey, so.... Apple.
Agreed, but I don't exactly consider pricy to be... on seconed thought, I agree 100%.
ah i also forgot to add in my orignal post in thes thread is very few Macs had there own case. the TAM was one that truly had a orignal case
I recal reading that Steve Jobs was the one that wanted to sell these but Woz wanted the $666.66 and Steve Jobs did not like it but Woz told him the .66 made it ok. i cant remember I might have the Steves mixed up
So one of the steves wanted to be goo dand the other not, like a split personality?
You are aware it was Stveve Jobs and Steve WOZniak, right?? 2 Steves
In my sentance the word LIKE makes sure that the FIGURE OF SPEECH used is, in fact, a simile.
I am sorry I misundertood, I know people that refered to Steve Wozniak as just Woz and had no idea what his first name was
dont forget bout the mac tv
I thought about that but I dont think many would know what the Mac TV was.
true, but sad. i certainly know what one is because i own one
You know, that was the first time I have ever seen good pics of that thing.I wouldnt mind finding one for myself. Thanks for the link.
nice little collection you have MacG4, that lc475 in a Lc405 case looks nice in black.
i have a Yikes G4 but i only have the mobo and cpu i just need to find a case with no mobo and cpu and no drives so i can put mine together.
