“One of the few remaining examples of Apple Inc’s first pre-assembled computer, Apple-1, sold for $905,000 at an auction in New York on Wednesday, far outstripping expectations,” Lehar Maan and Devika Krishna Kumar report for Reuters.
“The relic, which sparked a revolution in home computing, is thought to be one of the first batch of 50 Apple-1 machines assembled by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Steve Job’s family garage in Los Altos, California in the summer of 1976,” Maan and Kumar report. “After that initial success, Jobs and Wozniak produced another 150 and sold them to friends and other vendors.”
Maan and Kumar report, “Fewer than 50 original Apple 1s are believed to survive.”
