January2022 marked the 38th Anniversary of the launch of this original MacintoshM0001 128K model! The original Mac was introduced with the famousOrwellian '1984' commercial during the Super Bowl on January 22, 1984 and wasthe very first reasonably affordable personal computer to use a mouse and aGraphical User Interface (GUI) with desktop icons. This Macintosh was producedduring week 30 of 1984 as decoded from the serial # label on the Mac thatbegins with F430 (F= Fremont, CA production plant, 4= 1984, 30= 30th week ofyear) indicating this Mac was produced mid-July 1984, the Macintosh was firstintroduced and launched in late January 1984. Original matching keyboard and mouse, both produced during week 29 of 1984 as decoded from the serial # of each. Original 'Macintosh' emblemand Model M0001 label on rear (very late 1984 production M0001 Macs had arevised 'Macintosh 128k' emblem starting sometime during week 47 of production, all Macsbefore then had this original "Macintosh" emblem).SteveJobs and the original Macintosh team signatures are molded inside the rear casehousing.
Macintoshsystem unit- (Model M0001)- RARE ORIGINAL128K RAM Macintosh motherboard! NOT upgraded nor modified! Original Apple ROM set and 128K RAM chips on the original motherboard! Upgrades to these 128K Macs to 512K RAM motherboards and higher capacity disk drives were very common once upgrades became available, however the internal upgrades were often not noted on the outer case. Therefore, many M0001 Macs still have the original case labels/emblems but that alone does not guarantee that they still havea 128K board and 400K drive inside, which is where much of the collector value lies now. This is a REAL 128K Mac as it came from Apple in 1984! When a Mac was upgraded with the official Apple upgrade kit the original 128K board was removed and swapped out for a new 512K board, so the original board was lost forever! Non-official upgrades which were common made modifications to the original board thereby taking away originality.
Mac isthe original beige/cream color, not all darkly yellowed, discolored,mismatched, marked up, cracked, or damaged like many are now. No markerwriting, no stickers or old sticker outlines, no cracks or missing parts, noengravings, only minor imperfections and aging as expected for a 38+ year old pre-ownedcomputer, very hard to find now in this very nice clean cosmetic condition. There is a minor superficial surface scratch on the rear visible, which is faintly visible in the one photo of just the back of the Mac. NOugly pry marks to any of the case seams of the Mac as this unit was never priedapart improperly with the wrong tools like many were, which greatly detractsfrom appearance and value as many have large nicks and chips at the seams, butoften is not shown or cannot be seen in photos. Many of these early Macswere pried apart at the case seams leaving ugly gouges and marks on the case,but this one was not.
Screenis bright, crisp, and stable with no burned-in image, or scratches on theglass. No corrosion to rear clock battery compartment, unlike many thathave damage from an old battery that leaked out.
Allfour original rubber feet on bottom of case and clean. Inside of Mac case isexceptionally clean, no corrosion, no dirt or dust, properly stored.
OriginalSony 400K Single-Sided Internal Disk Drive-Disk insert and eject mechanism freshly cleaned and re-lubed so disks go in andout smoothly like new again! Drive read/write head cleaned and tested.
Includedoriginal Macintosh disks load, run, and eject as expected.Original Macsare completely dependent on the internal floppy drive, as there is no hard drive, sohaving a properly serviced and tested floppy disk drive like this Mac isessential for actual use of the system. Most found now will have non-functioning drives that need extensive service or complete replacement, and they are hard to find.

Original1984 Apple Macintosh one-button mouse - (Model # M0100)Week 29 of 1984 production as decoded from the serial # starting with G429 (4=1984, 29 = week29).Original early squarestyle mouse connector with screws to attach securely to the Mac. Clean,cable undamaged, rolls smoothly, and working perfectly. Small piece of plastic missing from the one corner of the top case half section of the mouse as can be seen in the one photo with the mouse sitting on its side, of course has no effect on operation, just cosmetic.
Original 1984 Macintosh mice and keyboards were made at a different production plant from the Mac computers, then were paired up with a Macintosh computer unitfor final packaging and shipment, so will always be from right around the sametimeframe of production as the Mac if they are the originals that came with theMac, not from a much earlier and certainly not a much later week of productionthan the Mac as completed Macintosh units were not left sitting around waitingweeks for a mouse and keyboard, they were shipped right out with the accessoriesthat were already produced.This is amatching original set as it came from Apple in 1984 with week 30 production Mac, and both keyboard and mouse produced in week 29 of 1984.
