BERLIN: An auctioneer says one of Apple's first computers - a functioning 1976 model - has been sold for a record $668,000.
German auction house Breker yesterday said an Asian client, who asked not to be named, bought the so-called Apple 1, which the tech company's founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built in a family garage.
Breker claims it is one of only six known remaining functioning models in the world. Breker already sold one last year for $636,490. It says the computer bears Wozniak's signature. An old business transaction letter from the late Jobs also was included.
The Apple 1, which was sold for $666 in 1976, consisted of only the circuit board. A case, a keyboard and a screen had
to be bought separately.
