I guess to computer geeks this is a real treasure. http://www.ebay.com/itm/271836061695
Wow what a useless hunk of junk ......at least an old junky car can get you from point A to point B.. I bet that thing does not even have WiFi
My phone would blow that thing out of the water.
actually the more I think about it ......if someone is a fan of the guy who owned it, I can see it being worth something .....not anywhere near that much but something more than face value. If it were a 9/16 combo wrench that Ronnie Sox owned and touched with his finger print on, I would be willing to pay way more for it than what an ordinary wrench goes for. But it would have to be documented and have been owned by Ronnie Sox the legend himself not anyone else :love7:
But Steve Jobs didn't own it - it was somebody who bought one of the very first batch that Steve and Woz made in their garage...more like paying a lot for a car Ronnie Sox built but didn't drive or own
I think I still have a Kaypro II in the basement........"original laptop" LMAO No hard drive, has two floppies, I forget the specs, I think they are 180K. That's One Hundred and Eighty K....ilo bytes. Runs an OS called CPM
Kaypro II was a 'luggable' (as in, barely portable) - laptops were much later. Haven't seen a Kaypro in a few dogs' ages
That's weird ..... there is no mouse and I doubt its touchscreen
Here..... little piece of steel. 20-30K, about the size of a penny. http://www.hk94.com/images/flemingsear.jpg
This is from before Jobs stole the Mouse/GUI idea from Xerox PARC (later to accuse Bill Gates of stealing it from Apple for Windows) ;-)
Wow, still four days left... Currently there are 68 bidders... The high bid is almost $56,000.00
the add was misspelled should have said Garbage not Garage , I've still got an A2000 motherboard , Opalvision card and a fully populated Fusion40 card from the best computor system ever built .
I don't think it's that crazily priced. People have paid more for less I'm sure. Without Steve Jobs and the work that Apple has done, the computer industry wouldn't be where it is today. I'd love to own that computer!
Couple of things. One: Apple didn't steal the GUI from Xerox, they were invited to Xerox because Xerox knew they had something cool but didn't know what to do with it. Also Xerox was compensated for the visit to PARC with pre IPO Apple stock. In other words Xerox was well compensated for their inspiration. Two: This is a piece of computing history. We may look at it and laugh in the same way that we might look back at a completely stock model T. Actually this is more significant than a model T because the Model T was similar to the Apple II. Both the Apple II and the model T were mass market products that sold in the millions while the Apple I was only sold for a short time and sold in very small numbers. The Apple I was designed for hobbyists, it came with no keyboard, monitor, or even and enclosure. It was essentially a kit. This would be similar to the first examples of Harley Davidson Motorcycles as examples were largely hand built. Three: Price- someone mentioned a set of sockets on by Ronnie Socks. This is similar to an original Shelby Mustang. These early examples of home brew computers were something that were often built by very small factories where a good deal of the manufacturing was done by hand. The Apple I was almost entirely designed or was entirely designed by Steve Wozniak. Thus, while the Woz didn't personally build this computer he directly designed it. Regards, Joe Dokes
This is a charity auction. It's being backed by Apple, for a charity that they have an interest in. The what isn't relevant, and whom ever buys the computer will write the cost off as an tax deduction. At this level, with Apple involved, putting the auction on eBay is more a show of "look where were and are now." More of a novelty that the same bidders that this is targeted to, get a chance to put us common people in our place.
Now 71 bids at $66.7K.
Yeah, but you're really buying the tax stamp that it comes with...
It appears you are correct, Mr. Dokes! "Note also that Apple engineers visited the PARC facilities (Apple secured the rights for the visit by compensating Xerox with a pre-IPO purchase of Apple stock) and a number of PARC employees subsequently moved to Apple to work on the Lisa and Macintosh GUI." (from Wiki)
It's an old piece of shit. No more no less. People are stupid. They will buy and sell anything on ebay.
Lol, place your bid!!
The tax stamp is only $200.00, Finding a HK sear is difficult these days....and will only get more difficult. It's been nearly 30 years since the last transferable machine-guns/sears were built.:???:
Yup, but without the stamp, the price would be a lot lower, since it would be dealer/LEO only Cool thing, if you can get one
but HK isn't selling parts here anymore, from what the guy at the range said - their HK autos on the rental line are disappearing as they break and can't get replacement parts.
I agree with this man!!!
Had one of those in school...
Sorry everybody, the bidding is over. The lucky buyer got it for only $236,100.03!! What a deal! http://www.ebay.com/itm/27183606169...t%3D711-53200-19255-0%26rvr_id%3D817058946194
