Now on auction Steve Jobs' hand-built 1976 Apple 1 computer


The computer, which is in working order, comes from the first batch of 50 computers by Apple’s first client, the Byte Shop.Another 1976 Apple 1 Computer broke records earlier this year when it sold for 516.500 Euro (£437,746).It is known as ‘No. 46’ and will be auctioned on November 16 by AuctionTeamBreker of Cologne, Germany.
The ‘No. 46’ is the only known example which still has its original white cardboard box.

It is being billed as ‘Straight from Steve Jobs' Bedroom’ as it appears in a photograph of Jobs’ bedroom in his parental house, with a stack of identical boxes.

Early model Apple computers have been changing hands privately for many years but have only lately started to appear at public auctions.Apple's instant brand recognition and customer loyalty for its newest, as well as its oldest, products is one of the main factors behind its record prices.
Collectors could buy the computer out of nostalgia, as it carries historical importance as one of the first affordable home computers.
