We all know who Steve Wozniak is, the co-founder of Apple with Steve Jobs. One of the milestones they both achieved was the construction of the Apple 1. A very special personal computer. Today it can reach very high figures in auctions, especially if it is well cared for and is functional. If to that two requirements we add the signature of one of its creators, we have the perfect scheme to reach very high figures.
Let’s do a little history that never hurts. The Apple 1 was a personal computer released by the Apple Computer Company (now Apple Inc.) in 1976. They were designed and built by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs. The computer went on sale at a price of $ 666.66 (Whims of Wozniak who liked to repeat the digits) in July 1976.
Right now an Apple 1 computer signed by Steve Wozniak It goes up for auction with a starting price of $ 50,000. But of course not only because of the firm, but because it is in perfect condition with all its components necessary for operation. Further need to add original Apple shipping box which is in the same good maintenance condition.
This Apple-1 computer was restored to its original and operational condition in September 2020 by Corey Cohen, Apple-1 expert, and a video of it in operation is available upon request. Qualified bidders have a comprehensive report on technical conditions prepared by Cohen. I know evaluates the current state of the drive as 8.0 / 10. Apart from the existence of the exceptionally rare original shipping box, one of the few options and boxes known today, the most remarkable aspect of this Apple-1 computer is that it is documented to be fully operational: the system ran fault-free for approximately eight hours in a full test.
