• Rare Macintosh Going for $100K on eBay

    A seller by the name of "Wozniac" has placed for sale an item on eBay that is a rare artifact in the world of Macintosh computers. Billed as "beyond rare," what we have here is a prototype Macintosh 128K/Apple Mac with 5.25" Twiggy disk drive.

    "The world's oldest known complete Mac" can be yours... if you have a spare $100,000 laying around. That's how much "Wozniac" is asking for it. Oh... and for clarification, it isn't the Wozniak. Here's how the seller describes himself:

    I am not Steve Wozniak, nor am I attempting to impersonate him. My eBay ID is "wozniac", not "wozniak".
    I have had this eBay ID since 2007. Also, I live in Canada. Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple, Inc.) lives in the USA. My sincere apologies to you Steve, if this listing causes you any problems. Cheers!
    So far, no bids have been placed. But as of this writing, 5 days and 12 hours remain if you want to get in on the action and own a piece of history.

    "To date, only bits and pieces of the original 'Twiggy Drive' Macintosh have ever surfaced... A motherboard here, a plastic case there, but never a complete machine or example," Wozniac says. "This is the only one! The computer and keyboard are authentic and original, dated 1982-83. The computer and its keyboard were acquired together and complete, and have not been pieced together from miscellaneous parts."
