See-Through Macintosh

Why did Apple make this 1987 Macintosh computer with a translucent case? Possibly to examine the airflow over the components while it was turned on.

This is one of several unusual Apple products recently auctioned at Christie's, including one of the very few hand built Apple 1 models. You can view photos of these antiques at the link.

Please stop calling things from my college years antiques : /

Everyone knows that stuff from that era is just old crap -- not antiques yet!
