Apple computer hand-built by Steve Jobs to fetch 330k pounds

One of the very first Apple computers hand-built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in a garage almost 40 years ago is set to fetch up to £330,000 at an auction in New York. The Apple-1 Computer motherboard was in the first batch of computers for Apple’s first client, the Byte Shop, originally costing just £ 437.The computer, which is fully functional and one of the best preserved version ever seen, will go under the hammer in Bonhams on September 21 with a conservative estimate of £330,000. Designed and assembled by Jobs and Wozniak in a garage, the 1976 motherboard was traded in at a computer shop in Florida having rarely been used. It sat on a shelf until owner Tom Romkey dusted it off after spotting a similar gadget sell at auction for a world record £ 563,904 last year.
