Mac is theoriginal 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 minor imperfections as expected for a nearly 39 year old pre-owned computer,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 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 at the case seams 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!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- 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 insertejec/t disks, or read disks, among other possible 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 17 production Mac, and the keyboard and mouse produced in week 17 and week 16 of 1984 respectively.1984 Macintosh Picasso Accessory Kit- Rare originalMac white plastic Picasso Accessory Kit box.

All box flaps are fully attached, originaltape on bottom and ends taped over with new clear tape to hold the box closed as the original tape had dried and detached. Four pieces of brown tape was added at some point on the top flaps as shown.
