‘First Apple computer’ sells for $815,000

A prototype Apple 1, a holy-grail item in electronics memorabilia, has been sold for $815,000 (£618,000).
Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built just 200 of the computers in 1976.The model auctioned this week contains tell-tale signs that it is a prototype, probably made prior to its manufacturing run.This “celebration edition” Apple 1 was expected to make $1m, but the final bid was $815,000.It means it is not the highest-grossing Apple 1 computer – that distinction belongs to a rare working version that sold for $905,000 at a Bonhams auction in New York in October 2014.
