Original Apple computer sells for over $671,000

Apple 1 computer

An Apple-1 computer has been brought at a German auction at Sotheby’s for $671, 400.

The computer, made in 1976, was purchased by “a wealthy entrepreneur from the Far East, who wishes to remain anonymous”, say the New York Times. The story states that the seller originally obtained the machine for $40,000, installed some chips and wiring to make it functional, and also had the motherboard signed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Back in November last year, at the same auction house in Germany, $640,000 was spent on an Apple-, while in June 2012, at a Sotheby’s in New York, a similar machine sold for $374,500.
