Another rare original Apple computer hits the auction block, and while the hardware is not a marvel of speed in today's standards, it is still expected to pick up just about the price of a nice new supercar.
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak produced about 200 Apple-1
RR Auctions is preparing to bid for a functioning, late "Byte Shop" style Apple-1 model, expecting it to exceed $ 300,000 (about £ 233,553, AU $ 409 500). It's about the same you can expect to pay for the fast and sexyamong many many other amazing things.
Byte Shop Apple-1 comes from a series of 50 computers created by Jobs and Wozniak specifically for the Byte Shop in Mountain View, California, one of the first PC stores in the world.
The auction comes with not only the motherboard but also the original manual and a periodic display and keyboard to burn it up and turn to anyone who wants to see how powerful an Apple computer was in 1976.  If it is a bit too rich for your blood, the same auction also includes many other early Apple goodies, such as an Apple report from 1982 with personal message and signature from Jobs that contains a common mistake (instead of "instead" for & # 39; re & # 39;). Another strange job memorabilia for bids is a program signed by both Jobs and NFL who drive back Herschel Walker from an event where both were honored.
In the case of football, there is also a copy of the iconic Apple Super Bowl advertisement from 1984, which is expected to sell for over $ 10,000. It comes with some technological catch, though: you have to find an old Betamax player to see it.
