There were only 200 made back in the 1970’s. And if you have one, you could sell it for a lot of money.
One of the first personal Apple computers has sold at auction for more than 223-thousand-dollars. It certainly has a different look to today’s computers.
The Apple-1 originally sold for $666 and was signed by company co-founder Steve Wozniak.
It had been restored to a fully operational state and was purchased by a collector who wishes to remain anonymous.
Only 200 were manufactured in Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ garage in California, in 1976 and 1977 and helped launch the company that became the first publicly-traded business to close a trading day with a three-trillion-dollar market value.
An original handwritten advertisement for the Apple-1 Computer written by Jobs sold for almost $176,000 at the same auction according to RR auction house.
