Signed by the artists

Have you ever looked inside the case of the original Macintosh? No, we’re not talking about the motherboard or the disk drive here — we mean the case itself. On the inside of the case, in raised plastic, were the signatures of the Mac division employees.
Why would Apple do something like this? Simply put, the Mac was special. Specifically, Steve Jobs felt that the Mac was a work of art. Artists sign their work, so it only made sense to have the signatures on the Mac.
Apple included the signatures on the original Mac and continued this practice part way through the production of the Mac SE. Several years later, Apple again included signatures on the inside of 2 Macintosh models.
