Original Apple-1 computer fetches $365,000 at auction

Shy of auction house Christie's estimate of $600,000, one of the few original Apple computers that was assembled and sold out of late co-founder Steve Jobs' Los Altos garage fetched $365,000 at auction. The Apple-1 computer computer was named the Ricketts Apple-1 Personal Computer after original owner Charles Rickets who had acquired the system for $600 in 1976.

The auction's closing price is far short of the $905,000 closing price paid by the Henry Ford Museum at a different auction in October.
