Rare Apple 1 Computer Sells at Auction For $671,400

A very rare Apple 1 computer sold for a record $671,400 in a German auction on Saturday, according to The New York Times.
As Mashable reported ahead of the auction, the Apple 1 computer is a low-powered PC from Apple's humble beginnings, which began with original co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. This specific computer that was up for sale at German auction house Auction Team Breker is still functioning. It is reportedly only among six Apple 1s left in existence.

The New York Times reported that the buyer wants to stay anonymous, but is a wealthy entrepreneur from the "Far East." Saturday's sale was higher than Auction Team Breker's recent sale of another Apple 1 that went for $640,000.
The Apple 1 is quite a piece of history from the Cupertino, Calif.-based company, which these days ranks among the most valuable companies in the world.

  1. Apple has own brand name so why "Apple 1". It is not disgusting but seems something different. The New York Times now notes that the Fred Hatfield who was the original owner of the machine was not the former Major League Baseball player and instead was a New Orleans resident who sold the machine in non-working condition to a private buyer for $40,000 earlier this year.
