NEW YORK (June 21, 2013)—An Apple 1 from 1976, one of the first Apple computers ever assembled, goes on the Christie's auction block next week and it could sell for $500,000, or more.
The Apple 1 is a forerunner of today's MacBooks, IPads and IPhones.
Ted Perry, a retired school psychologist from California who owns the old Apple, has kept it stashed away in a cardboard box.
He said the green piece of plastic covered with memory chips is where the personal computer "revolution" started.
The board was produced by college dropouts Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak and first sold for $666.66.
The Apple 1 will be offered online from June 24 to July 9.
Another Apple 1 was sold last month for a record $671,400 by a German auction house.
