Another Apple I Auction Coming Up

Last year an original Apple I computer from 1976 was sold for a record-breaking $640,000. Another working Apple I computer will be auctioned off next month. This is your chance.

German technical antiques auction house Breker announced another Apple I auction. Last year Breker sold an Apple I for an astonishing $640,000.  On 25 May 2013 collectors and Apple-aficionados will have the chance to buy another of the 6 surviving Apple I computers still in working order (estimate: $260,000 – $400,000).

Besides the Apple I the auction on May 25 also has some other pioneering electronics on the list. The world’s first "Intel 4004" microprocessor in a 1971 "Busicom-141PF" ($10,000 – $15,000) and the first major Personal Computer, the "Altair 8800", which kick-started the PC revolution from the cover of Popular Electronics magazine in 1975 ($4,000 – $7,000).

But that is not all. Breker will also offer some antique machines like the James Watt Copy machine from the 18th century and one of the 10 available Pascaline mechanical calculators invented by Blaise Pascal in 1652 valued at $130,000 - $260,000).
