    I don't care much for Apple but I love rare old tech, especially prototypes! I'd like to see them in action, just for kicks. Functional antiques are the best, like a clean classic car that gets driven instead of a garage queen that only goes out to car shows.

    Iĺl wait for the WALL-E prototype :)

    Who else wants to bet that these listings were already taken down by a nice friendly nudge from Apple citing copyright infringement?

    There is no end to the silliness that Apple customers will spend on anything that says "Apple" on it :)

    $8000? So it's actually one of the less expensive pieces of apple hardware?

    I'm expecting this to turn into another 3G magsafe Macbook fiasco. I don't see why anyone would even go near this thing given what happened with that last prototype.

    I like Apples old hardware like the Mac Classic, LCIII, LC 500 series, just about any Mac OS 7.5.5 machine out there...

    It's when they went to OS X/iMac is when they turned me off. Along with Steve shafting the short lived "Mac Clone" makers, and when it was more important for a computer to make a "great conversation piece", nvm making the machine a useful and productive computer...

  • it is so ugly is like from 90's with the price from 90's
