Included the original monitor, keyboard, mouse, and printer. It's a very rare collectable. The pictures are inverted because I don't have a camera so I used my webcam. The escape key is missing.
Gorgonops: HOWEVER, if you look at the photos of the Twiggy mechanism inside the prototype Mac it appears that is only has 20 wires, and the circuit board on the drive appears to be different compared to the Lisa version of the mechanism. So... this seems to be solid evidence that this prototype is using genuine intended-for-the-Macintosh parts rather than being fraudulently thrown together using a Lisa 1 Fileware drive and a Twiggy faceplate. Whether the use of the 20 pin connector indicates that the drive is directly compatible with the 3.5 inch drive is another question; the PWM signals are obviously incompatible between a *Lisa* Twiggy and a Sony drive, but since the Mac Twiggy uses a different circuit board all bets are off.
Definitely is. I wonder who ended up with the twiggy Mac? Anyone here?

judging by the cut out hole in the upper right corner of the disk icon it is indeed a twiggy disk... so there must have been System (and ROM?) versions that supported it :S?
