Dr. Steven Weyhrich, historian and author of the Apple II History web site, brought this remarkable Apple ][ auction on eBay to our attention. What makes this Apple ][ so interesting is it’s early serial number, #271 — and check out the case, it lacks the ventilation slots that appear on later Apple computers.

We expect this beautiful system will draw interest from serious collectors from all over the world, and we’re eagerly watching to see how much it goes for.
