Apple 1 computer sells for record $825k

Remember that Apple 1 computer auction Techday reported last month?

Well, yeah, it’s just sold for a record $825k.

Over the weekend, collectors and Apple-lovers battled for a selection of Apple I computers still in working order, with the final price tag blowing previous sales out of the water.

Last November, German auctioneers Breker made international news for selling an original 1976 Apple I computer for the world record price of US$640,000.

Believed to be bought by a “wealthy entrepreneur from the Far East,” the new deal was worth US$671,400, beating the old sale considerably.

“This is the sensational 1st product of today’s highest-valued company ever,” the advert read on German auction site Breker.

“This Apple 1 set on offer here is 100% authentic and in full working condition.

“Already a legendary milestone from the dynamic dawn of the personal computer age.”

Is $825k a bit steep or worth the price? Tell us your thoughts below
