1976 Apple computer sold
One of Apple's first computers, a functioning 1976 model, has been sold for a record 516,000 euros.
German auction house Breker said today an Asian client, who asked not to be named, bought the so-called Apple 1, which the tech company's founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built in a family garage.
Breker claims it is one of only six known remaining functioning models in the world. Breker sold one last year for 492,000 euros.
It says the computer bears Wozniak's signature. An old business transaction letter from the late Steve Jobs was also included.
The Apple 1, which was sold for 666 US dollars in 1976, consisted of only the circuit board. A case, a keyboard and a screen had to be bought separately.
