That would be an original 8-bit Apple I computer, the computer that launched Apple in the late 70's. It was fairly limited as I believe it used a teletype instead of a monitor (I might be mistaken in this regard). It's successor, the Apple II was Apple's first commercially successful computer, roughly comparable to a Commodore 64.

It had no hard drive, probably just a few KB of memory.

Check out Wikipedia, there's a world of information out there.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

According to Wikipedia, they did sell some pre-assembled.

Whilst you might want one for nostalgia value, it will not do anything remotely interesting or valuable for a modern Mac user.

I'd let sleeping technology die.

Yeah, you really ought to tell that to the Smithsonian, which is where the picture at the top was taken. I'm sure they have no idea what a hunk of obsolete junk they have in their collection.
