“A huge collection of Apple Macs, dating to the tech giant’s early years, is offered at Roland Auctions,” Paul Fraser Collectibles reports.

“All originate from the collection of the famous New York based Apple retailer and repair shop Tekserve, which recently closed its doors after close to 30 years in business,” PFC reports. “The auction house comments: ‘Apple computer aficionados, technology collectors, and dedicated patrons alike will vie for some familiar (and many never before seen) items from the iconic store’s permanent collection.'”

“These will include a single lot of 35 Macintosh computers including a first generation signed by company co-founder Steve Wozniak, an original iMac and a 1994 iBook,” PFC reports. “It’s expected to realise $12,000-14,000 on August 23.”
