Sure, you can’t use it, but think of the fun you can have making it and admiring your creation!

But here’s a Macintosh 128k replica that is of a totally different level: The Golden Apple.

The creation of Love Hultén, a Swedish designer, craftsman, and innovator, the Golden Apple is captivating in its beauty.

Hultén describes his baby:

“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.”
