I remember playing Castle Wolfenstein on my friend's Apple //e as a kid. The first time I heard a computer speak! The fact that these things are becoming museum pieces makes me feel old :(

Wow.. this sucks... I can make an Apple I board with similar parts and some parts from old computers, for less than U$150.00. Maybe I should do and make money from this...

A fool and their money are soon parted. I gotta wonder what you would do with it anyway. Build a glass case and have it sit there for all to enjoy the case? I've got an old 386 laying around, maybe I should see what some idiot is willing to pay for that...still works!

Apple didn't try to reclaim it by stating it was "stolen" or that they didn't authorize the sale because they own all their products in perpetuity and they can't be resold without permission?

only 200 were made, and a lot of those were traded in for better offers that Apple offered to these first owners

Ha and to think that when I was growing up, I had one of those things. Along with an Apple two and several other 8 bot wonders from the day. Hell I wonder what my old Atari 400 is worth now?
