With the meteoric rise in the fortunes and fame of Apple and its products, its antique products have also seen a huge bump in their value. We posted earlier about a 1984 Macintosh 128k machine which was eventually sold for a whooping $3,519. And now, another Macintosh machine has surfaced on eBay, this time the extremely rate edition that came with a Twiggy disk drive. The seller has stated the starting price for bidding at $99,995.


When Apple first rolled out Macintosh 128k machines, they originally came with a Twiggy floppy disk drive. Twiggy disk was a format that was devised by Apple and the disks measured 5.25 inches. However, these disk drives came only in the earlier formats of Macintosh machines and were eventually abandoned because they became obsolete when Apple also decided to go with the 3.5-inch floppy disk that Sony created.

And that makes this machine an even more rare piece of Apple’s history. The eBay seller who is selling the machine goes by the name of ‘wozniac’, who is by no means the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak. The seller seems well aware of the rarity of this machine and has stated the starting price for bidding on it as $99,995.

According to the eBay seller, ‘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. 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.’

He has further posted a number of images to substantiate his claims which seem pretty genuine. Nonetheless, the proposed price for the machine is bit too high and only a true Apple-lover may go for it.
