Bidding on Apple I Christie’s Auction Expected to Reach $500K

Yes, believe or not, someone else dug up another rare Apple I home computer, and has decided to put it up for auction. This time bidding will begin at $300,000, and is expected to reach a cool half-million before it ends.

AppleInsider:

One of the first computers ever built will hit the market next week at legendary art auction house Christie’s. The projected sale price was reported on Friday by the Associated Press.

About 200 Apple I machines were made, but most no longer exist. Estimates peg the current number of original Apple computers at between 30 and 50.

A working Apple I went for $671,400 last month in a German auction. However, that system had the added attraction of having been signed by Apple co-founder Steve “The Woz” Wozniak.

The previous record was $640,000 for a working Apple I back in late 2012. And take heart, if you don’t have an entire working computer, and only have a working Apple I motherboard, an auction last June saw one of those fetch $375,000. So, you got that going for you… Which is nice.
