Ok the other day we showed you the Worlds 1st Laptop, but here is one of Apples 1st Computers, which wasÂ sold out of Jobsâ€™ parentsâ€™ garage in 1976, it took $666.66 to make it and 34 years later it will go up for sale at Christieâ€™s in London on Nov. 23rd for a whopping 150k euros.(Thatâ€™s around $200K) Appleâ€™s first shot at a computer comes with all the fixings: manuals, box etc. and even a nice letter from Jobs himself. Only 200 of these machines were produced with only a few surviving today. This model of Apple 1 is actually the higher-end model that included the read-write capability for an extra $75 at the time, and it came with came with 8K of RAM. Now Mac Pro can take in 64 GB RAM.
See what came in the box after the jump!
So, that Apple-1 we saw a while back was auctioned off today, for a winning bid of Â£133,250, or roughly $211,535 — not bad, considering that the original sale price was (believe it or not!) $666.66. According to the Wall Street Journal, a spokesman for Christie’s in London called it “a record for a personal computer sold at auction.” Besides the machine itself (with its 8-bit 6502 microprocessor and 8K RAM), the lot included a letter from a certain “Steven Jobs” with his parents’ return address. If you happen to be the person who won the auction, we know a guy with a copy of Apple-1 BASIC.
Of Coarse remember Most Computers til the mid to late 90′s sold the monitor separate!! This looks like manuals on how to use, a memory chip, and a motherboard, and has a cassette interface…WOW!!!
