In the United States with the hammer went the first Apple computer



Over a span of about ten months, Jobs and Wozniak produced about 200 Apple-1 computers and sold 175 of them.

The famous creation of Steve jobs and Steve Wozniak of the mid-70s called Apple I was sold at auction for exorbitant even for modern computers the amount.

A working version of the Apple-1, which first went on sale in 1976 for $666.66 as the company's first product, was sold at the RR Auction in the U.S. on Tuesday.

First was an Apple Macintosh Plus personal computer, signed by Jobs and nine other key members of the original 1986 Macintosh development team, which sold above estimate for $28,750.

This Apple-1 is one of only 60-70 remaining of the original 200 that were designed and built by Jobs and Wozniak that originally sold for $666.66.

Where has Monkeypox spread to in the UK? Is YOUR area affected?
The initial cases can be traced back to Nigeria, and the first victim was a traveller from the area visiting Cornwall . A healthcare worker who treated a patient diagnosed with monkeypox has also contracted the disease, it has emerged.

Seeking to take their products to a larger audience, Jobs approached the owner of The Byte Shop, Paul Terrell, in Mountain View California, that was one of the first personal computer stores in the world.

In fact, in the mad greater scheme of old Apple tech, this is a relative bargain: one Apple I went for $905,000 back in 2014, and another went for $815,000 in 2016. The machine was restored by noted Apple-1 expert Corey Cohn to its original operating state.

"The Apple-I was ghastly underpowered compared to the Apple-II", said Mr Wozniak in an email to the BBC on Tuesday. Unlike numerous known Apple-1 boards, this unit has not had any modifications to the physical board, and the prototype area is clean and unused.

It's not clear if the Apple 1's new owner does intend to do just that, or simply keep it locked up in a cabinet somewhere as a testament to how valuable the machines really are.
