Rare Apple I to be sold at auction

Rare Apple I to be sold at auction

Another piece of Apple history is headed to the auction block later this year. According to a report in Computer World, an original Apple I computer will be offered at a Christie's auction that will be held October 9 in London, England. The Apple I belonged to former Apple employee Joe Copson, who reportedly tried to sell the unit on eBay last year for US$179,000. This Apple I is housed in a plastic casing that loosely resembles the Apple II and is missing some DRAM, said Mike Willegal, an expert on the Apple I computer, who talked to Computer World.

Unlike the most recent auction for a working Apple I, which sold for $375,000, this Apple I is non-functional and may only fetch $125,000. It is one of only 50 that are still in existence.
