AppleInsider:

Only 200 Apple I computers were made, making the systems a rare collectors item. Between 30 and 50 units are believe to still exist.

The final price was less than was predicted, as observers thought it would do as well as a working Apple I did at an auction in Germany earlier this year, which sold for a final bid of $671,400. Bidding in the Christie’s auction started at $300,000.

The system is one of the first 25 Apple I computers ever assembled. It is inscribed with the serial number 01-0025 in black ink.

When first released in 1976, the Apple I retailed for $666.66. That bought customers a unit hand-built by Wozniak.
