First Apple computer sells at auction for $387,750


An Apple 1 computer sold on Monday, Jully 8, 2013 for $387,750 at a Christie's online-only auction.


NEW YORK — An original Apple computer from 1976 has sold at auction for nearly $388,000.

Known as the Apple 1, it was one of the first Apple computers ever built.

It sold Monday for $387,750 at a Christie’s online-only auction. The auction house did not disclose the name of the buyer. The seller was a retired school psychologist from Sacramento, Calif.

Vintage Apple products have become a hot item since Steve Jobs’ death in October 2011. Mr. Jobs joined forces with Steve Wozniak to build computer prototypes in a California garage, and Mr. Wozniak built the Apple 1.

Another Apple 1 was sold in May for a record $671,400 by a German auction house. It broke a record of $640,000 set in November.
