This Macintosh 128K is all original inside, NEVER upgraded! Many original Macs were upgraded to 512K RAM which meant either modifying the original motherboard, or a full replacement of the original board if officially upgraded by Apple.

Very RARE!

Celebrate the40th Anniversaryof the launch of this original Macintosh M0001 128K model!The Mac was first introduced with the famous Orwellian "1984" commercial during Super Bowl XVIII on January 22, 1984; and was the very first reasonably affordable personal/home computer to use a mouse and a Graphical User Interface (GUI) with desktop icons.

Macintosh system unit- (Model M0001)- Week 44 of 1984 production as decoded from the serial # on the Mac that starts with F444 which decodes as: F= Fremont, CA plant, 4= 1984, 44 = 44th week of year which was late-October 1984. Serial # on the Mac matches the original serial # label on the side of the original retail box so this is the full set just as it came from Apple way back in 1984! NON-Upgraded original Macintosh 128K motherboard still inside, never upgraded or modified!

Mac is the original beige/cream color, not all darkly yellowed, discolored, mismatched, marked up, cracked, or damaged like many seen now are. No marker writing, no stickers or old sticker outlines, no cracks or missing parts, no engravings, only very minor imperfections as expected for a 40 year old pre-owned computer, but very hard to find now in this nice clean overall cosmetic condition!NO ugly pry marks to any of the case seams of the Mac on top or sides as this unit was never pried apart improperly with the wrong tools like many were, which greatly detracts from appearance and value as many have large nicks and nicks at the seams, but often is not shown or cannot be seen in photos. Many of these early Macs were pried apart all along the case seams with screwdrivers leaving ugly gouges and marks on the case, but this one was not.

NO corrosion to the clock memory battery compartment on the rear, many will have heavily corroded contacts from old batteries being left in which leak out and cause internal damage to the Mac, this one is clean!All four original rubber feet still on bottom of Mac and clean, not sticky. Screen display is bright, crisp, and stable with no burn-in or scratches on the glass. Steve Jobs and the original Macintosh design teams molded signatures inside the rear case housing.

Sony 400K Single-Sided Internal Disk Drive- Disk insert and eject mechanism has been fully cleaned and properly re-lubricated, so disks go in and out smoothly as designed. Drive head cleaned so disks read properly. Original Macs are totally dependent on the floppy drive as there is no hard drive, so a properly serviced and tested disk drive like this one is essential for original intended use given the age. If you risk buying an original Mac with a non-serviced drive it will likely be locked up and unable to insertejec/t disks, or read disks, among other possible problems.

Original 1984 Apple Macintosh keyboard- (Model # M0110)w/original coiled keyboard cable. Week 44 of 1984 production as decoded from the serial # starting with G444 (4=1984, 44 = week 44). Original Picasso cardboard sleeve and nice clean white foam holders with embossed Apple logo, foam not cracked or broken.Sleeve edge torn on the one end where it inserts into the Styrofoam holders in the main box. Original keyboard cable is clean and tightly coiled like new, not all stretched out like heavily used ones, prong ends not broken so stay firmly in place. All keys are clean and functional, every key tested working to register when connected to this Macintosh!

Original 1984 Apple Macintosh one-button mouse- (Model # M0100) Original square style plug connector. Week 42 of 1984 production as decoded from the serial # starting with G442 (4=1984, 42 = week 42). Original Picasso cardboard sleeve and nice clean white foam holders with embossed Apple logo, foam not cracked or broken. Sleeve edges not torn on either end. Mouse rolls smoothly and works perfectly with this Mac.

Original 1984 Macintosh mice and keyboards were made at a different production plant from Mac computer units, then were paired up with a Macintosh for final packaging and shipment, so will always be from right around the same timeframe of production as the Mac if they are the originals that came with the Mac, not from a much earlier and certainly not a much later week of production than the Mac as completed Macintosh units were not left sitting around waiting for a mouse and keyboard, they were shipped out with the accessories that were already produced.This is a matching original set as it came from Apple in 1984 with week 44 production Mac and keyboard and week 42 production for the mouse.

1984 Macintosh Picasso Accessory Kit- Rare original Mac white plastic Picasso Accessory Kit box. Nice clean white color, not yellowed, corners not cracked or broken. There is a superficial scratch on the top of the lid. The included original disks are all tested and working on this Macintosh with the freshly serviced internal disk drive! Includes all of the following:
  • Macintosh Owner's Guide
  • MacPaint Manual
  • MacWrite Manual
  • Macintosh System and MacWrite MacPaint disk
  • A Guided Tour of Macintosh disk
  • MacPaint disk
  • MacWrite disk

  • Original Apple branded Macintosh power cord
  • Original Picasso fold-out packing list and set-up brochure showing all the original contents
  • Original Macintosh Programmer's swith
  • Original SEALED set of unused Apple rainbow logo decals (2 large, 2 small)

Apple Macintosh Original Retail Box- Original serial# label on the box matches the serial # label on the Macintosh! Date code stamped inside the box under the bottom box flap is "10-84" indicating the box was made by the box manufacturer in October of 1984 likely shortly before this Mac was produced in late October of 1984.

Box includes both the original top and bottom internal white Styrofoam that holds the Mac, in nice clean and white undamaged condition, not cracked or broken. Top foam has the large Apple embossed logo where the Picasso accessory kit box is placed. Original dealer shipment label on side of box as shown.

Box is in excellent condition considering the age of 40 years and it is the box this Mac was originally shipped in from Apple! Some discoloration and scuff marks, edge wear, dings etc. as expected given the age. Over-all very nice clean and solid! All box flaps are fully attached, original tape on bottom and ends taped over with new clear tape to hold the box closed as the original tape had dried and detached. Both box side carry handles are NOT torn through or damaged, which is not typical with these early Mac boxes given the weight of the contents the handles are usually torn through, this one is perfectly solid and handles in tact!

Most of these 1984 Macintosh boxes are long gone now 40 years later, or in much worse condition than this one considering it the box the Mac originally shipped in and has remained with this matching # Mac all this time! Ready for prominent display in your Apple or vintage computer collection!
