First Ever Apple 1 Computer Hand-Built In The 1970s Will Be Auctioned For $300,000

A piece of computer history that helped launch a trillion dollar company is hitting the auction block and is expected to fetch $300,000. A rare, fully-functioning Apple-1 being auctioned by Boston-based RR Auction in September is one of only 60 or so remaining computers from the original 200 made. The machines were designed and hand-built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in 1976 and 1977 and originally sold for about $666 to local enthusiasts. The Apple-1 was restored to its original, operational state by expert Corey Cohen. The system operated without fault for approximately eight hours in a recent test and will even ship with its original keyboard designed and built during the 1970s. Apple co-founder Wozniak and Jobs only produced 150 models of the Apple-1 to sell to their friends and family.
