“A rare, never-used and still-in-box Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh, designed by present-day Apple design head Jonathan Ive, has turned up on Ebay for auction,” Electronisa reports.
“The unit is one of the 11,601 machines sold to customers outside Apple,” Electronisa reports. “The four smaller accessory boxes have been opened for inspection, but all components are still in their original packaging.”
Electronisa reports, “Originally introduced in 1997 at a cost of $7,500, the computer exemplified the concepts and philosophy that would dominate Apple’s future design aesthetic under returning CEO Steve Jobs… As of early Monday morning, only a couple of dozen people had viewed the auction, and the bidding price (with no minimum set) was $28.13.””
