Item 6006 - Steve Jobs Signed Macintosh PowerBook 190cs Catalog 579 (Mar 2020)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $12,671.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Apple PowerBook 190cs laptop computer, measuring approximately 11.5″ x 8.5″ x 2.5″ closed, signed and inscribed on the bottom in black felt tip, "Doc, Happy Computing, steve jobs." The laptop is complete with its rechargeable battery and power cable. In very good to fine condition, with the plastic case near the hinge popped loose, making the screen difficult to open; the computer is reportedly functional, though untested. Includes a detailed letter of provenance from the consignor, who received the autograph in-person around 1996 while working on audio for the Pixar film A Bug's Life. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from PSA/DNA and Beckett Authentication Services.

The PowerBook 190cs was introduced in August 1995 as a less expensive alternative to the top-of-the-line PowerBook 5300. The 190cs features a 10.4″ color display, differentiating it from the 9.5″ grayscale display of the 190. This generation of PowerBooks were also the first to support mouse-clicking by tapping the trackpad, an innovation that Apple has continued to refine over the years. Steve Jobs's autograph is rare in any format, and this impressive piece of Apple hardware—enhanced by the founder's warm wishes for "happy computing"—is an unusual and truly extraordinary example.
