What you need to know
- An Apple-1 is available on eBay.
- It has a BIN of $1.75m but you can make an offer if you'd like.
- It's said to be in "almost perfect condition."
It isn't every day that a piece of Apple history becomes available to buy but that's the case right now. If you're willing to spend around $1.75 million, that is.
If you mosey on over to eBay (opens in new tab) you can take a look at what might the best Apple-1 I've ever seen. Its seller says that its in "almost perfect condition" which probably explains why it's listed for almost three times the usual going rate.
The auction includes a custom case and the seller says that they have kept the Apple-1 safe and sound since 1978. There are plenty of accessories to go with the machine including the Sony TV-115 display. Even so, I'm not sure the seller is going to get their $1.75 million. But if you're tempted they are willing to listen to offers.
I've checked the back of the sofa and put my $4.50 bid in. Fingers crossed!
