from the site:
On Thursday night, Kathryn and I unboxed my latest Ebay acquisition: an Apple //c. There are many vintage Apple II computers available for auction, but this one is special:
It’s never been opened. Ever. It hasn’t seen the light of day since before it was shipped on May 5th, 1988.
I wrestled with whether I should open the box, or store it and let it accrue collector’s value. In the end, I decided that the reason for my purchase wasn’t financial. My very first computer was an Apple //c, and I can’t see wanting to part with this computer, ever.
