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, this one is clean!Allfour original rubber feet still on bottom of Mac and clean, not sticky. Screen display isbright, crisp, and stable with no burn-in or scratches on the glass.Steve Jobs and the original Macintosh design teams molded signatures inside therear case housing.
Sony 400K Single-Sided Internal Disk Drive- Dated April 1984 production sticker on the drive. Disk insert and eject mechanism has been fully cleaned and re-lubricated, so disks go in andout smoothly as designed. Drive head cleaned so disks read properly. OriginalMacs are totally dependent on the floppy drive as there is no hard drive, so aproperly serviced and tested disk drive like this one is essential for original intended usegiven the age. If you risk buying a Mac with a non-serviced drive it will likely be locked up and unable to insert or eject disks, among other problems.

Original 1984 Macintosh mice and keyboards were made at a different production plant from the Mac computers, then were paired up with a Macintosh unit 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 25 production Mac, and the keyboard and mouse produced in week 22 and week 21 of 1984 respectively.1984 Macintosh Picasso Accessory Kit- Rare originalMac white plastic Picasso Accessory Kit box.
