Recently, an Apple-1 computer made by Steve Jobs with Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, in 1976 has been put up on eBay for sale for $1.5 million (Tk126,932,565).
According to the eBay listing, the computer is functional, reports Gadget Snow.
The exorbitant price is explained in the listing to be because of the rare nature of the computer.
"There are less than six known surviving original Byte Shop KOA wood cases with most in museum collections, with this unit being in the best-known condition of any of those cases, also protecting the board from dust and corrosion, over the well-protected years in a special storage," it says.
The owner of the computer shared details of the machine.
"The provenance of this Apple-1 system is seen in #79 on the Official Apple-1 Registry, as the second owner. I took possession in early 1978 from the original owner as a part of a trade-in for a newer Apple II computer."
Along with the computer, the buyer will also get digital copies of the Original Owners Manuals, Schematics, Basic Manual, Cassette Interface and Guides.
The software that comes with the Apple 1 computer includes Basic Language, Games, Low and High memory Tests, 30th Anniversary Video and more.
Jobs along with Wozniak made Apple-1 computers in 1976 and it was the first product the company ever sold to customers. Only 200 units of Apple-1 were made before it was discontinued in 1977. It was back then launched at a price of $666.66 (Tk56,413).
