As the shop grew and became a landmark Apple dealer, the Tekserve
team found themselves surrounded by beautiful Macs of all kinds.
In twenty years they decided to turn the best of them,
groundbreaking models, as they put it, into a museum-like
exhibition. And later, when the shop was shutting down, an Apple
Lisa, an alien Nextstation Turbo machine, and the rest of the
grand collection had to find a new home on an auction.
The prospects looked pretty grim, because a collection like that
had a high chance of ending up in some millionaire’s basement.
Luckily, MacPaw’s CEO Olexandr Kosovan heard about the auction and
made an instant decision. He secretly bought all of the iconic
Macintosh computers before the collection was taken apart and sold
piece by piece.
That is how almost 40 Macs from every generation were reverently
moved to MacPaw’s Ukrainian office, to the uncontrollable joy of a
hundred Apple fans who work here. We think there’s hardly a better
place for historical Apple computers than our futuristic
Apple-inspired office. And hardly a better audience than a team of
passionate Mac developers.
