Original Apple brings amazing auction price

A vintage Apple computer has sold for more than $670,000 at an auction in Germany.

The Apple-1 computer sold Saturday was assembled by Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in 1976.

Bob Luther, author of the book, “The First Apple,” said the computer is a rare collectible.

“Well, the Apple 1 – there were only 200 built and they came out of the garage of Steve Jobs,” Luther explained. “And then Apple had a trading program, because they wanted to bring them back, so they destroyed a lot of trade-ins. So, about 46 of them today. It’s really the holy grail of collectible technology.”

The German auctioneer says the buyer who purchased the computer for $671,400 is from the Far East and wishes to remain anonymous.
