An Apple I built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak is for sale on eBay
It is certainly not new to find old PCs for sale, collectible models that remain pervaded by the charm of the age they carry. They remind us of times when dreaming did not really cost anything, the risks were much higher than today but the gratification of success remained an unsurpassed thing.

Apple is certainly the perfect example, the company born in a garage in Los Altos, California, from the hands and minds of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. It was in that garage that the Apple I was born, the first ever Apple-branded car, whose firmware was based on the MOS Technologies 6502 chip, adapted for the occasion by Wozniak himself. Only 200 units went into production, priced at $ 666.66. Of these, the first 50 were built directly by Jobs and Wozniak, which makes it even more special.

Precisely one of these first 50 specimens, still fully functional (remember that this model was marketed since July 1976 until August 1977), was put up for sale on eBay, by a user who claims to have obtained it as a trade-in for an Apple II way back in 1978.

“The provenance of this Apple I is certified under number # 79 of the “Official Apple-I Registry”, as second owner. I got hold of it in early 1978 from the original owner as part of a trade-in for a more recent Apple II model at the computer store where I kept all Apple IIs in Montreal, Canada , until Apple settled there too. The part of the case that covers the transformer was recently reinforced to avoid the same damage that occurred on other Apple I models, where the adhesive on the case tended to deteriorate over time. "

This little gem can be yours for the modest sum of 1.5 million dollars. A not insignificant capital gain, if we consider the initial price. Almost double the figure of the model we told you about a couple of years ago. Obviously, since this is an auction, we do not exclude that the price tends to rise further (and not a little), so let's wait to see who will be the lucky owner of this collector's item (and how much they will be willing to shell out for it). br>
If you still don't want to spend millions, we recommend the new MacBook Pro 16 ″ on offer at a more accessible price on Amazon.
