1976 Apple computer sells for $668,000
AP: A German auction house said Saturday that a 1976 Apple 1 computer sold for a record $668,000.
The functional model, purchased by an anonymous buyer, was built by Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in a family garage. It is one of only six functioning models left in the world, the auction house claims.

Obviously Apple was fibbing a bit when they released the Macintosh Classic. This here is the true classic, right down to Steve Wozniak’s inimitable signature. Though that’s a pretty steep price tag for a machine that can’t even play Angry Birds.
