Apple I personal computer on auction at Christies

One of the earliest Apple relics (no, we’re not talking about Steve Job’s first turtleneck sweatshirt ever) is already on auction at Christie’s, where the Apple I personal computer will start from an estimated $160,000 with the potential of a $240,000 upside. Of course, only around 200 of these were hand-built by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, with a rather interesting price figure of $666.66. Talk about a phenomenal return on investment that even Warren Buffet would have failed to spot. Even after you take $666.66 in 1976 dollars and adjust it for inflation, it still won’t touch the $160,000 opening price. Currently, around 30 to 50 of these puppies are still in existence, so if you’re feeling flush, you might want to place a bid for this.
