Apple’s Come a Long Way Since This Original MacBook Reference Desig

At first glance it doesn’t look like much but this thing is a reference design of the first 13-inch MacBook. Remember those from 2006?

Looking through the Flickr collection of bits and pieces from Jim Abeles, you can see lots of stickers and stampings that prove this is most definitely a development kit allowing engineers easy access to every and any component. Heck, the Intel proc even says “Secret” on it.
