The original Macintosh was the true herald of the GUI era. “CAT” and “dir” were giving way to “point” and “click”. With it’s 16-bit, 8 MHz Motorola 68000 processor, Sony 400k micro-floppy disk drive and 9” high resolution black-on-white display it was a sensation. Unfortunately, the paltry 128 KB RAM kept it from performing to its full potential. As a result, many original Macintosh 128k were later upgraded or converted to 512 KB.

This machine features an external 400k floppy disk drive - which is nearly a necessity for the 128k - and an original 128k logic board.  It was acquired as surplus from Videx, a local company that started out making Apple II 80-column display cards in the 1980s. If you are an old Macintosh user, you may remember their MacSlots game for Macintosh.
