The Apple Mac 1 Computer is a truly rare thing to see after it was discontinued in 1977, and now having only 6 working Mac 1 computers currently in the world. You can imagine how much these rare antique computers are worth, but when one of them is signed by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, then you can see why someone bought it for over 500,000 euros in Germany earlier this year.
The Apple Mac 1 computer was first released in 1976 after having been created by co-founders, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in Steve Jobs’ parent’s garage! Now that is definitely something that should surely be classed as the eighth wonder of the world.
The only thing we know about the buyer is that they are from Asia, the buyer still remains anonymous after purchasing the Apple Mac 1 computer signed by Steve Wozniak since May 2013.We wonder what the buyer is going to do with this sought-after computer? If it was me, I would have it encased in the middle a room, a room that is only for the Apple Mac 1 computer.
In 20102, an Apple Mac 1 computer without the Wozniak signature sold for 490,000 euros which isn’t really that far off this sale. The buyer of the signed Apple Mac 1 computer got a good deal as far this goes.
Apple Mac 1 computers where quite rare even when actively on the market as only around 200 computers were ever sold. The Apple Mac 1 computer was only in production for about 1 from 1976 to 1977. Only 46 remain in existence but as we said before, only 6 are in working order.
Bob Luther, author of The First Apple, called the Apple 1 the “holy grail of collectable technology” – and I agree with him!
