Apple-1 signed by Steve Wozniak put up for auction

Pass it on without obligation and check that the auction is the original Apple-1 without gimmick or detail and certified by Steve Wozniak. An auction house put up the first computer in Apple’s history and promises that it is fully functional, very neat in all aspects and even with the factory operating system.

Tested for up to 8 hours, RR Auction’s Apple-1 is probably the last remaining apple company heirloom in the world and it’s not just an inoperable piece of metal. Corey Cohen, a computer expert, restored the device to its original operating system last September, placed it in its still-preserved original packaging, and now comes for a starting price of $ 50,000.

The kit includes an Apple-1 board, its original Apple Cassette Interface (ACI), an old Apple-1 power supply, an original Datanetics keyboard placed in a wooden box, an old 1976 Sanyo monitor, and an old-time cassette player. Panasonic brand. The auction is named after Steve Jobs + Apple Auction and is described as follows on the website:

“This Apple-1 computer was restored to its original operational state in September 2020 by Apple-1 expert Corey Cohen, and a video of its execution and operation is available upon request. A complete, technical condition report prepared by Cohen is available to qualified bidders; He assesses the unit’s current condition as 8.0 / 10. Aside from the presence of the exceptionally rare original shipping box, one of the few known Apple-1s and box sets known today, the most notable aspect of this Apple-1 computer is that it is documented to be fully operational: the system was operated without failures for approximately eight hours in a complete test ”.

The auction firm in Boston also promises that it contains a kind of witness from the hands of Steve Wozniak himself, which increases its value as an extremely exclusive and unique relic in the world. Although it is not a Persian signature intended for an autograph, it is a notation that still remains on the original product box.

It was in the 1970s that a brilliant young Steve Wozniak assembled and designed a personal computer with his own hands. Later his friend Steve Jobs saw the potential of his creation and decided that the product could be sold. The birth of Apple began with this computer and therefore it is an outstanding product for the year 2020.

Steve Wozniak’s Apple-1, like the one up for auction, went on sale precisely in 1976 with a controversial price of $ 666, a curious figure that has nothing to do with the mark of the beast, but rather with obsession. of Wozniak with the series of repeating numbers. The manias of geniuses.
