If you like collecting geeky antiques then you are definitely gonna find this rare 128K Mac prototype interesting; it is currently listed on eBay with an extravagant $99,995 opening bid and features the Twiggy 5.25-inch floppy disk drive which was removed from the original line of Mac computers because of its unreliability. The 5.25-inch floppy disk drive was used during the initial periods of Mac development; when Jobs found out about its unreliability, he replaced it with a 3.5-inch floppy disk drive, manufactured by Sony that could store 400KB of data.

I don’t know who is gonna bid on this guy, maybe some affluent collector. Anyways, hit the source link for great pictures of this rare 128K Mac Prototype.
