Why You Shouldn't Throw Out Your Old Computers - Apple 1 Computer Worth $668,000!

by Ben Olson

One of Apple's first computers-- a fully functioning 1976 model-- has been sold at auction for a record $668,000! German auction house Breker sold the so-called Apple 1 to a client from Asia who asked to remain anonymous. Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the model in a family garage. Breker claims it is one of only six known remaining functioning models in the world and that the computer bears Wozniak's signature. An old business transaction letter from the late Jobs also was included. When you consider the Apple 1 was sold for $666 in 1976, that makes for about a 1,008% return on your money -- actually far better than even Apple stock!(myway.com)
