The auction house PR Auction claims to have one of the rare Apple 1 computers in its range. According to this, the computer has been returned to its original condition and contains the original packaging and operating instructions as well as the original manual for the Apple cassette interface.

A rarer Apple-1 is for sale

In total, only 200 pieces of the Apple-1 are said to have been built and sold for 666.66 US dollars each. According to the “Apple-1 Registry” website, 66 copies have now appeared again.

In the current case, however, it is a special example, because in addition to a picture of the owner together with Steve Wozniak, the original packaging has also been signed by Wozniak. “What makes this Apple-1 even more valuable is that the collector had the foresight to show Steve Wozniak one of the very rare original packaging and let the Apple-1 developer hold it in his hands one last time,” said Bobby Livingston, Executive Vice President at PR Auction, opposite Fox Business.

The computer was completely overhauled in September 2020 by Apple 1 expert Corey Cohen. In addition, he created a report that states that he rates the condition on an 8 out of 10 possible points. In addition, the device should have run for eight hours without errors. Thus this copy would be only one of six devices that is still functional.

The condition as well as the encores are the reason why the auction house is calling out the proud price of around 400,000 US dollars. An Apple 1 computer was already sold for around $ 500,000 in 2019. In 2014, one of the devices even reached the incredible price of 905,000 US dollars.

The beginning of a success story

With the Apple-1, the foundation stone was laid for one of the most successful companies in the world: Apple. This is probably one of the reasons why the first devices, some of which were still made by hand, achieve such top prices at auctions. However, these devices were sold without a housing or monitor. Interested parties had to assemble these components themselves in order to be able to use the Apple-1. However, he had an already assembled motherboard, which was a unique selling point at that time.

Apple is now the most valuable company in the world, with a market capitalization of over $ 2 trillion.
