Some of our reader might remember the very rare Apple 1 computer that was going up for auction in the Christie’s Online Auction House last month.
The Christie’s online auction has now finished and the Apple 1 computer finally went for a bargain price of $387,750. I say bargain price as other Apple 1 computers have raised over $670,000 in previous auctions.
The Apple 1 computer included its original manual, schematics and a photo of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. The Apple 1 computer was part of a bigger auction lot that consisted of a total of ten iconic lots from Apple’s past and included an Apple Lisa, a prototype Apple IIGS, and a Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh limited to 12,000 units.
“The original Apple Computer, also known retroactively as the Apple I, or Apple-1, is a personal computer released by the Apple Computer Company (now Apple Inc.) in 1976 for the sum of $666.66. They were designed and hand-built by Steve Wozniak.”
