A Little byte different

Preserving and restoring rare, vintage, Apple computers for years to come primarily focused on prototype machine. Many machines are not functional when I purchase them but nearly every machine in my collection is fully operational. 

Contact me if you'd like to check some of these machines out.

about Me

The proto Preserve

My name is Hap Plain. My day job, which allows me to afford these gems, is working at Lexus. From a young age, I’ve always been taking things apart. I’m just one of those people who likes to know how stuff works and whenever possible fix it. I recall my first Macintosh back in the ’90s, a Performa 575. It was a great computer and there was a vintage Apple store, rainbow sign and all, just down the street for repairs. My family switched over to PC's during the dark ages, but once I started to need a computer during high school, I made a push for a Mac. I bought a first-generation iPod classic before they even had software for PCs and that’s what got me hooked. I’ve been using a Mac since 2002 and won’t go back. Read more about my collection at:
