Fox News Reports– Remember the old Apple computers way way back when. Well, an auctioneer says one of Apple’s first computers, which is a functioning working 1976 model has just been sold for a record of $668,000.

A German auction house Breker said Saturday an Asian client, who did not want to be named, bought the Apple 1, which the tech company’s founders Steve Jobs and Steve Woziak build in a family garage.

Breker claims it is one of only six known remaining functioning models in the world. He  already sold one last year for $636,500.
It says the computer bears Wozniak’s signature. An old business transaction letter from the late Jobs also was included.

The Apple 1, which was sold for $666 in 1976, consisted of only the circuit board. A case, a keyboard and a screen had to be bought separately.

Vintage collectors all over, especially with electronics are willing to pay the going price. Makes you want to look around the attic for vintage items!
