I received a pair of these in the mail today, and although they weren't advertised as functioning and sold "as is", they booted just fine with the addition of a power adapter I have from a PowerBook 5300. They are in both in pretty good physical shape. One is missing the battery door, and both are missing their rear port door. These are really interesting computers, and I plan to do a more detailed segment on a future podcast episode.
I am having trouble finding more about their history. So far, I've only found a few sources of information. None of these sources speak of the role Apple had in making these. Are they considered clones? They aren't Macs though or are they? Frogdesign helped design them so in addition to sharing the guts with a 5300, they also take a lot of Apple design cues by way of Frogdesign.
