Brand new in original box. Came with my Apple Developer kit but I have another eGPU enclosure that I use.

$280 USD + shipping. I'm located in Toronto, Canada.

One benefit of this Sonnet Breakaway Box as part of the Apple Dev Kit is that it has 60W power delivery. The retail version only has 15W.

true - but that also means that the graphics card inside the egpu gets more power in the original SOnnet 350 box (300W) as opposed to the one from the apple dev kit (225W) - this consequently means that the original box bought on the sonnet website is compatible with greater number of cards including Titan X for example - which won't work in the apple dev kit's box due to limited power supply for the graphics card. 

 

Wondering if that also impacts native compatibility of other cards (say Sapphire Nitro + RX 580) with High Sierra or not at all..
