January2024 will mark the 40th 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 25 of 1984 as decoded from the serial # label on the Mac thatbegins with F425 (F= Fremont, CA production plant, 4= 1984, 25 = 25th week ofyear) indicating this Mac was produced mid June of 1984. The Macintosh was firstintroduced and launched in late January 1984. 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).
Macintoshsystem unit- (Model M0001)- Motherboard upgraded to an Apple Mac 512K RAM board, with the original 400K single-sided internal floppy disk drive and the original external Model M0001 128K case housing and emblems.
Mac isthe original beige/cream color, not darkly yellowed,mismatched, marked up, cracked, or damaged like many are now. There is some typical minor darkening and discoloration, mostly noticeable on the lower half of the back side and around the rear ports. No markerwriting, no stickers, no old sticker outlines, no cracks or missing parts, noengravings, only some little nicks and chips to some of the edges and corners, largest of which is on the back top corner these can be seen in the photos. Just minor imperfections as expected for a 39+ year old vintage pre-ownedcomputer, very hard to find now in this very nice clean cosmetic condition.
NOugly pry marks to any of the case seams, which greatly detractsfrom appearance and value. Many original Macs seen now have large nicks and chips all along the seams that connect to front face to the back case, butoften is not shown, or cannot be seen in photos. Macs that were improperly pried apart along the case seams with the wrong tools to open will have ugly gouges and large nicks on the plastic case seams,but this one does not.
