    That AC adapter is amazing

    because it is basically the modern adapter without the magsafe (it even has the flip-out cord coil). It is amazing that it took a decade for that design to finally see light of day, though I wonder if manufacturing costs was a consideration considering the moving parts.

    ^ This last one is the older design, but note that they're all made by ASTEC....

    I owned one or two DUOs and had one of those adatpers, I remember the coiling ability was very nice for its time and the "yo-yo" adapters on the iBooks were "a neat way of solving the same problem," but in no way was this "rare."

    Interesting

    It is interesting to know that if you hang on to something long enough for it to become "old", it regains value. Antiques and even old video games fall into this category though I am surprised these things have such low, asking prices. It makes me thing the owners should have waited a bit longer.
