    Default Black Mac SE/30

    Is this a real thing or painted?

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Extremely-R...19.m1438.l2649

    EDIT: My phone wasn't showing the whole description. It is painted. Although, doing a bit of homework, there were some 'Tempest' Macs supposedly that did come in a black color, though it's unclear if they were from the factory that way.

    Painted, as described in the text.

    very few models were supplied in Black (macintosh TV being one of those, the 5500 was also available but not in every country) the SE series were never supplied in black or any other shade.

    the tempest was a different beast, the casing was different (modified) and the rear one was unique.

    So this is just a Standard SE/30 sprayed in black.

    This is a "must have" for any collection.
    As the seller states... I wonder why. This thing is of no value for any collection.

    Most ebay sellers with vintage machines know little to nothing about what they're trying to sell, and assume just because it's old, it's going to be rare.

    It is indeed NOT anything more than an SE/30 that someone rattlecanned black. Oh, and cut a hole in the side for a fan so if you strip the paint off you are still stuck with a giant hole.
    The signatures inside are a sure way to filter out people too stupid to google.

    what is all that gunk to the left of the back sticker?
    Why is the current bid over $150.00 (shipping included)?! You can find an SE30 for under 50 dollars pretty easily, cant you? I just got a fatMAC for $45

    It sold for $305. Someone wanted it.

    ..Im speechless! I thought this was really stupid, but that guy is a genius. I have an se20 that works, I just need some krylon cans of black paint... Im gonna build a "must have for any collection" box myself..... I guess Im just lucky that mine "has the signatures of some apple employees in it" as well!
