A prototype of Macintosh IIcx

Another prototype on eBay, this time a Macintosh IIcx. This machine is a DVT model, meaning a machine whose development is not yet complete. It is in rather poor physical condition and does not start up according to the seller. He was asking for $2,500 for it.

The machine has its CPU (a 16 MHz 68030) and FPU, but no graphics card. We also see the presence of a hard drive, RAM (no idea of the quantity), and four chips that contain the ROM (soldered onto the final machine).
