Original Apple Computer Built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak to Be Auctioned

Apple’s original computer, handcrafted 45 years ago by company founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, was auctioned in the United States on Tuesday.

The working Apple-1, which is the panacea for today’s Sleek Chrome-and-Glass MacBook, is expected to win up to $600,000 at auction in California.

The so-called “Chaffe College” Apple-1 is one of 200 that Jobs and Wozniak in the early 2 trillion (approx.

What makes this even rarer is the fact that the computer is encased in cocoa wood – a patented natural wood air. Only a handful of the original 200 were made this way.

Jobs and Wozniak sold most of the components of the Apple-1. A computer shop has shipped about 50 units, some of which have decided to be closer to the woods, the auction house said.

“It’s kind of a holy grail for collectors of antique electronics and computer technology,” Apple 1 expert Corey Cohen told the Los Angeles Times. “This is very interesting to a lot of people.”

Auctioneer John Moran said the device, which was equipped with a 1986 Panasonic video monitor, was owned by only two owners.

“It was originally purchased by an electronics professor at Chaffee College in Rancho Cucamonga, California, who later sold it to a college student in 1977,” says a listing on its website.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the unidentified student was only paying $650 (about 48,100 rupees) at the time.

This student is now making a lot of money: a functioning Apple-1 launched in 2014 was sold by Bonhams for over $900,000 (approximately Rs.6.66 billion).

“A lot of people just want to know who owns the Apple 1 computer, and they’re not just tech people,” Cohen said.

Apple became successful in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but was founded after Jobs and Wozniak left.

The company was revived in the late 1990s and Jobs was reappointed as CEO.

Before his death in 2011, he released the iPod and then the iPhone that changed the world.
