Rare Apple-1 Up For Auction At $270,000

That is a relative bargain for the first Apple computerآ—assuming the charity’s estimate of its value being $1 million is accurate. Accessories include 4K RAM expansion and assorted program cassette tapes.

The "Celebration" Apple-1 is extremely rare not only because of the scarcity of Apple-1 computers, but according to Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer, no known PCB boards of this type were ever sold to the public. At this time, this is the only known Apple-1 to show the signs of starting out as a blank original-run board and not part of the two known production runs, so this board appears to be unique from all other known Apple-1 boards.
