“A functional Macintosh 128k prototype has been put up for sale on eBay, complete with rare ‘Twiggy’ 5.25in floppy drive, original keyboard, mouse and power lead,” Caleb Cox reports for Register Hardware.
“The only non-authentic thing here is that the seller, who calls himself ‘Woz,’ isn’t actually Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak – a fact he’s happy to highlight – but an eBay user from Canada attempting to squeeze $100,000 or more from the pocket of an eager fanboy,” Cox reports. “The prototype, which was created in advance of the computer’s debut in January 1984, was acquired in a complete state and was not pieced together, ‘Woz’ claims.”
Cox reports, “Its most unique feature is the Twiggy drive, though, as few still exist today, let alone one implemented in an early Mac.”
