If you've ever worked on an Apple Macintosh Plus, you remember the 9 inch display and its simple yet elegant design. Now you can buy the first one to come off the production line which was given to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. And it even comes accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Gene Roddenberry's son, Rod.

From official release/information:
