About three months ago, an Apple I computer went for USD $375,000 at a New York auction, and an auction house in London is hoping to repeat that success with another Apple I.

About three months ago, an Apple I computer went for USD $375,000 at a New York auction, and an auction house in London is hoping to repeat that success with another Apple I.

(The actual inoperable Apple I that will be auctioned off on Oct. 9)

Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak (mainly Wozniak) built about 200 Apple I computers in 1976, and sold them at $666.66 apiece.  The Apple I became known as one of the first (if not the first) computer that came with a pre-assembled motherboard.

The latest Apple I memorabilia will be auctioned off at Christie’s in London on October 9, 2012, and is expected to go for between $79,000 and $127,000.  The downside to this particular Apple I is that it’s inoperable, so whoever the winning bidder is, he won’t be able to boot up the Apple I and reminisce on the tech of the 70’s.

“This is the computer that started Apple, now recognized as the most valuable company in the world; its significance is making computer technology accessible for all cannot be undervalued,” said James Hyslop, Chistie’s scientific specialist, in a statement.
