It was sold by RR Auction in Boston, USA.

Boss Bobby Livingston said, “Not only is it a marvel of early computer ingenuity, but it has created one of the most successful companies in the world today.”

The Apple-1 was originally conceived by Steve Jobs and Steve ‘Woz’ Wozniak as a bare board intended to be sold in kit form and completed by electronics hobbyists.

They eventually took the project further and built it into a complete personal computer.

Jobs and Wozniak produced about 200 Apple 1 computers and sold 175 of them.
