One of Apple’s first computers — a functioning 1976 model — has been sold for a record $668,000. German auction house Breker said Saturday an Asian client, who asked to remain anonymous, bought the so-called Apple 1, which the tech company’s founders, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, built in a garage.
The computer is one of six known remaining functioning models in the world. The computer includes Wozniak’s signature. An old business letter from the late Jobs also was included in the auction.
The Apple 1, which was sold for $666 in 1976, consisted of only the circuit board. A case, a keyboard and a screen had to be bought separately.
