    An important part of computing history (and also a fire waiting to happen, haha).  I don’t have one of these obviously, but I do have an original Macintosh, made in September 1984, and it still works (and in almost mint condition!).  I have the original Apple MacPaint and MacWrite diskettes too (which also work).  Pretty cool stuff.
