  • Another Working Apple I Computer Expected to sell for at least $600k in December

    Another fully functional Apple I which was personally sold by company co-founder Steve Jobs is expected to earn $600,000 when it goes on sale at Christie’s auction house this upcoming December. According to Reuters, the machine set to go on sale is a “Ricketts” Apple I personal computer named after original owner, Charles Rickets. This auction is set to take place on December 11.

    Along with the Apple I computer, the July 27 $600 canceled check made out by Ricketts to Apple Computer. Ricketts labeled the check as “Purchased July 1976 from Steve Jobs in his parents’ garage in Los Altos.” Although the Apple I is expected to sell for roughly $600,000 its very likely that it may sell for much more than that considering a rare working Apple I sold at an auction earlier this month for $905,000. Before that, the record price for the device was $671,400.

    For those of you who didn’t know, a total of 200 Apple I computers were made, each of which were hand-built by company cofounder Steve Wozniak in Steve Jobs’ garage in Los Altos, California. The product originally sold for $666.66 without a power supply, a display or housing. We’ll have to wait and see how much this piece ends up selling for.

      Wozniak is in his garage secretly building these old Apple I computers then selling them via third parties to rake in millions.

      Maybe they would have done better selling it for 777.77?
