What is my original Macintosh M0001 worth.

Specs: Windows XP
I was luck enough to be on the original Mac team and we were all given Mac's with our name on the back. I still have mine and is in great condition. It has the original keyboard and mouse and I was given a demo model of an external floppy drive. I still have lots of software and an original soft carrying case. I purchased a cooling fan that attaches to the top of the Mac as an after market item. I was wondering if anyone can give me an idea of what this is worth.

Wow. :)

I admire the fact you were on the original Macintosh team. With it signed with one of the original signatures, with the carrying bag, and it and the peripherals in mint condition as described, in my opinion, you could sell it for as high as $250 or more for your model, depending on who would value it and appreciate it's value. I would certainly explain the fact you were on the Mac team when selling your Macintosh.

It is true these computers were in desperate need of a fan--it's a big plus that your model includes a fan. :)

According to the serial number it was built in the 43rd week of 1983 - so it was an early build. Also with the plaque on the back with my name, I though it just might be worth a bit more.

Wow, again! You didn't include the part about it being built before 1984--the official release year for the Macintosh. :)

If you have the original Macintosh before '84, signed, with the case, and still in excellent condition, I would certainly go for $300-$350 rather than the original $250 I had posted.

I hope you get a good price for your Macintosh. They honestly were the revolutionary machines of their time, though Apple products still are. :)

The original Mac was such a revolutionary step in the crossover of the computer between work and home, much more, perhaps, than even the Apple II was because of the Mac's compact form factor and the way its GUI set the new standard for how people interacted with desktop PCs. I was a teenager in the 80s and experienced first hand the transition from Apple IIe to Macintosh in our household...and it was a wonderful time to be a kid with a computer! That is a very special Mac that you have there, and it would truly be an honor to own it. I have sent you private email about the possibility of buying this system from you, please look for my message.
