Apple I up for auction: buy a bit of Apple history for the bulk of your net worth

Apple

Attention Apple lovers: here’s your chance to get your hands on an original piece of company history, but the past has proven that you better have a lot of extra cash lying around. Sotheby’s auction house is offering a working Apple I computer, which is the original design that was built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak back in 1976 — by hand. It’s expected to fetch between $140,000 – 180,000, and those dollars buy you a mobo, cassette interface and the original BASIC manual to get you programming partying like it’s 1979. This isn’t the first Apple I to hit the auction block, but with only 200 of the things in existence, the winning bidder will join the upper echelon of Apple enthusiasts. So, if you’ve got cash to burn and fancy yourself the ultimate fanboy, head on down to the source link for the full details.
