Now collectors and apple "fanboys" have a chance to own a piece of the legacy by bidding on one of the original 200 wood-encased Apple-1 computers, built personally by a very young Jobs and Wozniak. This rare and unique collectible is going on auction at Christie's on November 23.
One of the 200 original wood-encased Apple-1 computers, built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in their garage in 1976, is going up for auction at Christie’s in London on November 23.
Originally sold for an eerie $666.66, the Apple-1 is expected to sell for over $200,000, proving that it really can pay off to let ancient pieces of junk collect dust in your attic.
The winner of the auction will be receiving an Apple-1 motherboard, 8K bytes of RAM, and a couple capacitors, connectors and interfaces. The original shipping box and several other goodies, such as a typed letter from Steve Jobs to the original owner all pictured here:
