Sony Discman - Apple Expensed Equipment

Recommended Posts

I came across a very odd Sony Discman today at a Goodwill.  It's a Sony Discman, Model D-11, which has a sticker on the bottom that reads:

 

PROPERTY OF APPLE COMPUTER, INC

EXPENSED EQUIPMENT

 

It was manufactured in 1991.  I realize this may not be the best place to post this, but I'm a member of this community, and not a member of any Mac/Apple communities.  Is there any significance to this item?  Any monetary or historical value to it?

I think it's just a normal Sony Discman which was used at Apple, maybe some person put an Apple sticker on it and listened to music, perhaps Beatles CDs.

It would be valuable if you could conclusively link it to a significant figure at Apple and/or show that it was directly used in the development of a significant piece of hardware. 

 

If some random programmer used it to listen to music in his/her/its cube while working, then it would have no particular value. 

 

You may wish to start your research by contacting whomever is responsible for asset management at Apple and having them check the serial number on the sticker.
