Belts or 'snap shirts,' anyone?
It wasn't just cotton T-shirts or sweatpants that Apple used to sell. You could also get your hands on a cotton belt for $5, complete with an embossed Apple logo and a cinch ring. Available in a number of colors -- dubious color mix of black-background logo and belt notwithstanding -- they would go perfectly with a "snap shirt" for both men and women.
Once manufactured by Patagonia, an outdoor clothing firm, the shirts had brass snaps instead of buttons, and were priced at $43.
Apple clothing not your style? How about a 'sailboard'?
It's not quite a yacht, but Apple's sailboard let surfers and sunbathers alike know which brand of computing software you like. The description reads:
"For beginners and seasoned sailors alike, the F2 America Sailboard offers superior equipment for the most exhilarating of sports. Constructed of ultralight EPS wrapped with impact-resistant ASA, this board combines speed with high-wind manoeuvrability.
Adjustable footstraps and daggerboard provide complete comfort and controls. This 11' 10' board is best for sailors over 145 pounds. Included are two polyester-reinforced ripstop Mylar sails -- a 6-square-meter powerhead and a 5-square-meter sail with gigantic Apple logo."
Back then, this sailboard was only $1100.
Blast from the past: Floppy disk drive storage space
I haven't seen a floppy disk since the days of going around my grandfathers for tea and Windows 95, but for those that needed at least 100 disks and wanted to store them in style, Apple once offered a walnut disk storage box for only $24.
In addition, if you needed a bag to tote around your Macintosh's "favorite travel companion," the Imagewriter or Imagewriter Printer, a padded Apple bag made things more simple. The leather tote was sold for $52.
