Record price for Apple 1

A rare functioning Apple 1 computer, the company’s first product, has been sold at an auction for $374,500 , more than double Sotheby’s estimate.

Only about 200 Apple 1s were ever created, hand-built by Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak and originally sold for $666.66 as a fully assembled circuit board. Wozniak is reported as saying he picked a price with a repeating number because it was just an easier way to type.

Only about 50 Apple 1s are believed to be in existence and only a few are known to still work.
