Apple-1 Expected to be Auctioned Off For $600 Thousand

Apple-1, the first ever computer created by the company sporting the bitten apple logo, is getting auctioned. An acution will take place today, during which you can bid for this technological white raven.

Apple is one of the technology leaders today. They offer smartphones, tablets, personal computers and laptops. However, the first product of what is now a global corporation was the Apple-1. Created in 1976 by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, among others, the computer is now an extremely rare tech relic. Not surprisingly, as only 200 copies were manufactured. Today, i.e. on 9 November 2021, the legendary model (registered as Chaffey College Apple-1) will be auctioned off. The starting price? 200 thousand dollars. The expected final bid is expected to be as high as $600,000...

Although the buyer will have to pay a lot for the Apple-1, he or she will receive a koa wood-cased device (only six copies of this model were given such a casing) with full cabling and original operating and programming manuals. Also included is a Panasonic TR-930U monitor manufactured in May 1986. Holding the auction just this year is not surprising. April marked the 45th anniversary of the creation of Apple-1.
