Strange Apple... Computer or Technician tool? Mysterious Goodwill listing

Recommended Posts

A very strange item sold by Goodwill in Sacramento, CA has me curious. Anyone know what the heck this thing is? I am told it sold for $74 - $100. It was sold as a vintage Apple computer... from the pictures, it looks like some electrician tool was given an "Apple Computer" sticker as a joke due to the device's shape resembling an Apple II but I still don't know what the thing is or does. Still, the case made me look closely and then look up "apple techstep" which IS a pricey Apple technician tool, but this case looks like a laptop one and wouldn't fit the main thing next to it with the voltage and amp things that make me want to hook speaker wires into like my 1990s stereo receiver.

 

 

So, what am I looking at??? Did the buyer find a steal of a deal or an expensive joke item?

Looks like a multiple-voltage power supply, perfect for powering computers or electronics if circumstances prevent using the proper power supplies.

It's just a bench power supply with an Apple sticker on it.

 

I've seen lots of cars with Apple stickers, but it doesn't make them an Apple product either... :)

:) yes, I am certain Goodwill was confused and know the sticker is no different than my implementation of an Amiga ball and Atari 800xl decal on my MiST, but I have never seen a power supply in such a design shape nor so large so I am hoping someone can pinpoint if this was an actual product for Apple field techs or some custom build.

I put an Apple sticker on one of my canes, to make it an iCane. :P

 

But yeah, that is just a PC power supply, in a custom enclosure.
