Rare working Apple 1 computer sold for $374,500

A rare Apple 1, the first ready-made personal computer, has sold for $374,500 in an auction at Sotheby's, New York. The computer, consisting only of a naked motherboard, with primitive microchips and circuitry exposed, is thought to be one of only around half a dozen working examples of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak's first hardware. The price was considerably more than Sotheby's estimate of $180,000 and sets a new record for a sale of one of the machines. It's estimated that of the Apple 1 original 200, only around 50 remain, and only six of those are known to be in working condition.
