What you need to know
- There's a boxed Apple-1 up for grabs via RR Auction.
- The computer is signed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
- It's expected to sell for around $400,000 with bids starting at $50,000.
Every so often, once in a while, sometimes, a little piece of Apple history appears in an auction somewhere and we all wish we had a spare few thousand dollars to spend. Today is one of those days except we all wish we had a spare $400,000. It's a lot, but it could get you a boxed Apple-1 computer. And it's signed by Steve Wozniak.
Set to be auctioned at RR Auction in Boston, lot #6001 - Apple-1 Computer with Original Box Signed by Steve Wozniak is quite the sight. The auction even says that it comes with everything you need to get it up and running, including the manual for the Cassette Interface. That sounds like a hell of a read, I'm sure you'll agree.
Oh, and when I say "get it up and running," I'm not talking hypertheticals here. This thing works!
I could really use one of those Nigerian princes emailing me with $14 million that needs looking after right about now.
