Apple-1 computer up for auction
Daily Record reports: [edited]
The first Apple computer that company founder Steve Jobs sold from his parents' garage is for sale - with a price tag of £150,000.
There were about 200 examples of the original "Apple-1" launched in 1976 and only a few survive. They came with a tiny 8k memory, and cost $666. This example will be auctioned off by Christie's of London.
It comes with packaging, manuals and a letter from Steve Jobs. He appears to be answering questions about what monitors and keyboards are best to use.
