Lightbulb Nice Apple Portable w/Active Matrix screen! Own history. Price drop 50%

Now up for sale: My Apple Portable. This is the first portable computer Apple ever sold (but with the rare active matrix display/screen).

It's in great condition except for some small damage in the back which does affect startup (see photo). When I first obtained the computer, it would start up fine but the crack in the back affects the power supply somehow. So the computer is being sold in non-working, as is, condition. If you know how to fix it, great. Condition is as pictured.

What's great also is that I have everything that came with the Apple Portable when it was first being sold, all included: the magnificent carrying case, the power adapter, the luggage tags and straps, the various user guides and disks. It's an amazing package. It's your next "insanely great" purchase.

$500. Get it fully working and keep it for your museum, or flip it for 2-3 times that. It probably costs less than your watch.

No trades (I'd consider your Apple Watch if it costs more). Toronto/GTA--but will ship to long-time members of ehMac who pay by EMT. Cash only otherwise.

The Portable often was referred to as the "luggable" because it weighed nearly 16 pounds, but nevertheless, it still was a significant advance toward truly portable "laptop" or "notebook" computers.
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” Steve Jobs.

“My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.” Steve Jobs.
