Original Apple 1 on sale for $160K
The Apple I personal computer, the first Apple’s product, will go on sale in Christie's auctions on November 23. The computer was sold out in Jobs’ parents’ garage in 1976. Estimated price range is $160,000-$240,000. In 1999, an Apple I reportedly sold for $50,000. Now the computer will sell for over 60 times its original cost $666.66 apiece. Only 200 of these machines were produced and only 30 to 50 are still in existence. The Apple I will be on sale in its original shipping box that shows that the unit shipped from Jobs' parents' house and with the Apple I cassette interface, as well as a signed letter from Apple cofounder Steve Jobs.
