the ‘macintosh 128k’, was originally released as the apple macintosh, was the first personal computer realized by the company. ‘the golden apple’ by love hultén is a bespoke replica and a tribute to the 128k. the project is handmade from american walnut instead of molded plastics, but the dimensions are kept unaltered. the replica has a handle built into the top of the case for lifting. ‘the golden apple’ has the latest ‘mac mini’ mounted inside, and the floppy drive has been replaced with a DVD reader. the custom made mechanical keyboard uses blue cherry tactile switches which are covered by gold plated key caps made from sink. a wireless mouse made from walnut completes the unique setup.

  • I think you should write: The replica has the built in handle. And not: a handle. Nevertheless great work of art. A real classic!
