A 1976 Apple-1 computer could fetch at least $116,000 at an auction over the weekend, it was reported.
The reserve sale price for the computer, according to auctioneer Uwe Breker, is $116,000 but the Apple could be purchased for as much as to $400,000, reported The New York Times. The computer will be auctioned in Cologne, Germany.
The estimate is not far off because last November, an Apple-1 sold for a world-record $640,000, according to Breker’s website. “But we will see,” he told the Times.
The Apple-1 was built by hand by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and is one of six known to exist. The computer also features his autograph.
"The Apple 1 is already a legendary milestone from the dynamic dawn of the personal computer age," Brecker told the Daily Mail. "This computer is one hundred-percent authentic and in fully-working condition."
He added: "At the time it was first sold the machine was always delivered as a motherboard only. The peripheral equipment such as power pack, keyboard, monitor and cassette recorder had to be obtained personally by the user."
Only 200 of the computers were ever built and they were sold for $666.66.
