Apple-1 computer with Steve Wozniak’s signature on box up for auction

Dec. 1 (UPI) — A Boston-based auction house is offering a rare piece of personal computing history — a fully functional Apple-1 computer with its original box signed by designer Steve Wozniak.

RR Auctions said the Apple-1, one of only a handful known to still exist with its original shipping box, was restored to its original working condition in September by Apple-1 expert Corey Cohen. The box was signed by Wozniak during a 2005 event at the University of California-Los Angeles.

The Apple-1 was designed by Wozniak and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in 1976. They built about 200 of the personal computers and sold 175.

The computer set to be auctioned by RR on Dec. 10-17 includes the original Apple-1 Operation Manual and original Apple Cassette Interface manual, as well as a program from the 2005 event where Wozniak signed the box. Bidding starts at $50,000.

Ulta-rare working Apple-1 computer with box going to auction

A rare piece of cyber history that helped usher in the modern computer age is going up for sale as RR Auction’s Steve Jobs + Apple Auction offers up a functioning Apple-1 computer from the 1970s, complete with its original box signed by Apple-1 designer Steve Wozniak.

When the Apple-1, which was originally known simply as the Apple Computer, was formally released in July 1976 it wasn’t very impressive to see. Out of the box, it was just a completed circuit board without even a case, and the buyer had to supply the keyboard and television set to get it to actually do anything.

This relatively simple machine was a starting point for one of the world’s most successful technology companies and was part of a handful of devices that helped to move computers out of the hands of scientists, engineers, and hobbyists, and into homes and offices.
