Late last month, Christie’s kicked off an auction for a rare Apple I computer with its original manual, schematics and a photo of the two Steves. The online-only auction ended today at a lower-than-expected US$387,750, according to a tweet from CNBC. Pre-auction estimates suggested the piece of Apple history could sell for as much as $500,000, as previous auctions for Apple I computers fetched up to $671,400.
The Apple I was part of a larger group that included a total of 10 iconic items from Apple’s history. Besides the Apple I, the First Bytes collectionalso included an Apple Lisa, a prototype Apple IIGS and a 20th Anniversary Macintosh limited to 12,000 units. All the auctions ended today, and we will update the prices for these vintage Apple items when they become available.
