LOL it sold for $666.66 originally... who says jobs didnt sell his soul for success?

Does anyone really care about apple now? I think most of the reason apple is so popular is the media hype surrounding their products. If you stop reporting on them they'll stop making an impact.

[citation][nom]TheBigTroll[/nom]macs back then had more value than today. back then, they are like a boutique gaming pc[/citation]

They were not like a boutique gaming PC. They were the only PC you could buy at that point in time.

This thing can be considered the start of the personal computer revolution.

I hope people don't start to think that their old computers will be worth something someday. Understand this was a very limited release, and is worth more than say a 1 off that was sold or given to a specific vendor. My father invented the kvm switch, and personally met with every big shot in the industry in the 90's, and has several documents regarding patent purchases from apple with steve jobs signature on them - and I couldn't sell them on ebay. Everything he touches isn't gold.

Worth more than a Macbook Pro 15-inch w/Retina Display by a factor of almost 200x, simply because it's not glued shut and unrepairable.

WOW, great price for that legendary piece of history! 1 out of a remaining 50 from a crop of 200? I hope it ends up in a display at Berkeley and not in some hobbyist's basement.

See Steve Jobs was the antichrist: The Apple 1 is said to be fully functional. It is one of 200 motherboards with a MOS 6502 8-bit, 1 MHz CPU made by Jobs and Wozniak in 1976 that sold for $666.66.

Tsk, just subliminally charging the devilish price...

WTF is someone buying this at that price. I could see buying the computer as a collectible, but not at $374,000. I'd like to contact that buyer. I have a jar of Steve Jobs' farts I collected. They are suppose to be magical.
