Apples 1st computer for auction

This will be history in the making. One of the original Apple computers that Steve Jobs shipped from his parents’ garage is being auctioned. The claims indicate that it will go for nearly $240000. The Apple 1 i.e. Granddaddy of the iPod, iPad and the iPhone first made  its debut in $666.66 and is estimated that 220 of them were produced. It was the first home personal computer. It came with a mere 8 kilobytes RAM.

So you can guess how much Apple will fetch for it.  The question here is not whether the actual thing work, it's just about the value. It is now a collect-able piece of item. Whether I think it is a good idea to buy it is not for me to say. It’s a collectible piece. A piece of culture and a collector’s item.

A fully operational Apple computer that Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, sold from his parents’ garage for $600 in 1976 brought $365,000 at Christie’s auction house. The Ricketts Apple-1 personal computer was named after Charles Ricketts, its original owner. This is the only identified surviving Apple-1 computer which was documented as having been sold directly by Steve Jobs to a person living in Los Altos, California family home.

This information came from the auction house. The auction house estimated the price to be around $400,000 to $600,000 but it fell short to what they expected which is far less than the Henry Ford organization paid in October for one of the computers which is $905,000. Out of the few hundred produced originally, it is believed that fewer than 50 original Apple-1 computers are in existence.
