It seems the world financial crisis has started to claim new victims. In a desperate attempt to raise some cash for the first ever Macintosh Plus along with the last known Apple I unit that was handbuilt by none other than Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs in their garage, are going to auction in the coming weeks.
The ‘Apple I’ originally retailed for only $666.66 and featured neither a keyboard nor monitor. The founders of Apple made only 200 of them and no more than 50 are thought to still exist. It was based on MOS 6502 chip and was one the first to come fully assembled rather than just a bundle of spare parts. Just add water. Don’t! Rather, simply add a keyboard and monitor and you’ve got instant Apple juice.
The Macintosh Plus was the longest-lived Macintosh with production until 1990. The 1 MB Mac Plus, serial number F4200NUM0001 was originally given to Gene Roddenberry back in 1986. It supported the double-sided floppy disk format and was the first Mac with a SCSI port for fast data transfer to and from an external hard drive. It can also be noted to be one of the first portable PCs since it even came with an Apple logo padded carrying case.
So, it looks like the perfect opportunity to get your hands on a couple of Apple relics. And THEN you can use them to cast a Voodoo spell and gain control of Wozniak and Jobs and then TAKE OVER WORLD! After all, all you need is make a Voodoo doll, stick a piece of the personal item (i.e. Apple I) inside it, grab your pins and you’re ready to go!
