Buy Gene Roddenberry's Mac Computer

By way of Slashdot: you may participate in an auction for Gene Roddenberry's Mac computer. The auctioneer say it was the first Mac Plus off the assembly line, but Technologer disputes that, saying it is an original Mac upgraded to a Mac Plus. (They don't dispute Roddenberry's ownership of it.)

The auctioneer says the value is in the $800-$1200 range, but one would guess it will go for much more. The auction site is interesting, graphically and otherwise. It specializes in items with historical provenance (including entertainment industry items like M. Jackson gloves). It has a clever but annoyingly slow film projector motif to show featured items. A search will go more quickly.
