Ford Museum snags Woz-built Apple-1 for $905,000 at auction

While us peasants are busy snatching up Apple's latest offerings this week, The Henry Ford museum is busy snagging a piece of Apple history. Going for $905,000 at auction, an Apple-1 hand-built by Steve Wozniak, was sold to the museum today.

The machine was initially expected to sell for between $300,000 and $500,000, but the final bid clearly blew those expectations out of the water.

There's no doubt that this is a monumental piece of history, as the Apple-1 was arguably what started the world of computing on its path to ubiquity. Therefore, it is both fitting and reassuring that the machine will rest in the halls of the Henry Ford Museum for all to see.

What do you think of this piece going for such a high price? Will you be checking it out on a future trip to the museum?
