Rare Apple computer's 135,651% price hike
Geege Schuman stashed this in History of Tech
One of the few remaining examples of Apple's first pre-assembled computer, Apple-1, sold for $905,000 at an auction in New York on Wednesday, far outstripping expectations.
The relic, which sparked a revolution in home computing, is thought to be one of the first batch of 50 Apple-1 machines assembled by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Steve Job's family garage in Los Altos, California in the summer of 1976.
Less than 40 years ago. Wow. The world has changed so much Geege!
Then, circuit boards looked like quaint little towns. Today ....
They look like complex metropolises...
