OQO Founder Lists Prototype PCs On eBay

If you’re a nostalgic person and want to keep little bits and pieces of history, regardless of whether they function or not, you might want to check out an eBay auction by OQO founder Jory Bell, who has put up two of the very first prototype OQO computers for auction. They most likely aren’t bootable, and there are some obvious faults to these units, such as a damaged LCD, though a replacement LCD is included for you to fix it yourself. Some components such as batteries and CF card are missing too. One of the prototypes, dubbed the ATTO, previously held the Guinness World Record at one time for the smallest PC and offers a capacitive touchscreen display, FireWire, and integrated antenna for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The current bid stands at $227.50, so it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth the money (and trouble).
