DHAKA: There’s no screen, it was built in 1976, and the clunky design does not exactly recall today’s iPads, but the first Apple computer is expected to fetch up to US$180,000 in New York.
Sotheby’s in New York is auctioning the rare piece of computer history, which actually still works, on June 15, reports The Straits Times.
The Apple I computer was designed and hand-built by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and marketed by Steve Jobs at the birth of Jobs’s career as the world`s computer design guru.
Sotheby’s called the computer ‘an exceptionally rare, working example with original Apple cassette interface, operation manuals and a rare Basic Users’ Manual’.
