Posted June 5th, 2012 | by The Update
From the New York Times: Attention all Mac fans- Your chance to own a part of the Apple legacy is here. Auction house Sotheby’s will be putting up on the block next month, one of only six working Apple-1 personal computers, Macworld reports.
However, be prepared to pay up: the auction house estimates the piece will go for up to $180,000. Sotheby’s describes the Apple-1 in their catalog:
“An exceptionally rare, working example with original Apple cassette interface, operation manuals and a rare BASIC Users’ Manual. It is thought that fewer than 50 Apple I Computers survive, with only 6 known to be in working condition.”
