“Christie’s has just sold one of the original Apple computers, put together in the garage of Steve Job’s parents, for $387,000 during an online auction of vintage tech products,” Kathryn Tully reports for Forbes.
“The Apple-1, one of the first 25 Apple-1 computers, was designed and hand built by Steve Wozniak in 1976,” Tully reports. “It’s thought there are less than 50 Apple-1 computers still in existence.”
Tully reports, “The price paid was also well below the €516,471 ($663,000) fetched for a functioning Apple-1 in May this year at an auction in Cologne, Germany.”
