I mean... honestly other than this auction I've never seen or heard
ANYTHING about a twiggy Mac before.... I would have thought that if
anyone, Linzmayer in Apple Confidential or even Isaacson in the Steve
Jobs book would've brought it up. The motherboard has some
differences on it, most notable he also has an odd keyboard with a pull
out tray on it, plus I've never seen the figure in the trenchcoat before
as a logo for the product. I'm not an Apple guy obviously, my main
thing is Atari, but I do follow Apple, I've owned a Fat Mac with a
hyperdrive, a Lisa/2 with a Profile and a Mac IIci, now I own a
Macbook... I am Apple System and Laserprinter certified, but I don't
follow Apple close enough to know such intimate details as this
mysterious machine. I am wondering if Wozniak could shed some light on it.

I don't remember the fate of the last auction but
do remember the sellers name. IIRC it was listed for a similarly ridiculous price and the
speculation was the same. Could be legit but nothing was written for it so expensive

I asked a very in the know Mac person and he
still doesn't know if this is for real or not, can anyone comment as to the validity
of this unit???
I remember seeing that 'round these parts a few months ago; IIRC,
the conclusion was that it was probably real, but since there's
little to no existing software on Twiggy disks, it's not like you
can do much with it (unless you want to make use of that EEPROM
adaptor board). I myself would love to see a picture of the
early logic board; was that one of the ones with Burrell's IBM
Never mind; there's actually a picture further down the page,
I just didn't see it in the gallery.
