The Macintosh 128K, originally released as the Apple Macintosh, was the first personal computer released by Apple.The Golden Apple is a luxurious one-off-a-kind replica and a tribute to the 128k. It’s handmade from American walnut instead of molded from plastics, but the dimensions are kept unaltered. And just as the original, the replica has a handle built into the top of the case for lifting. The Golden Apple has an up-to-date Mac Mini mounted inside, and the floppy drive has been replaced with a DVD reader. The custom made mechanical keyboard uses blue cherry MX tactile switches which are covered by gold plated key caps made from zink. A wireless mouse made from walnut completes the unique setup.
It is a brilliant project design… I love it!
