2020 Market Value: Apple Macintosh 128k

How much is my vintage Apple Computer / Macintosh worth?

A Retromatti Blog Series

Released in January 1984 as the very first Macintosh, the 128k was the first personal computer to feature a Graphic User Interface, a basic feature that would define home computing for decades to come. The 128k was also the first to feature a 3.5″ floppy disk drive. Adding to its collector’s value is the travel case that came with every 128k. Complete, non-upgraded systems, with original packaging, manuals, software disks, and travel case, will easily fetch $2,000+ on eBay.
