Apple I computer designed & built by Steve Wozniak & late Steve jobs is auctioning in New York. Built in 1976, this rare piece of computer performs simple calculations & word processing is without keyboard, casing & monitor.

This computer first went on sale for $666.66. At that time Apple sold 50 to retail chain & made 100 more. Even now 50 computers exist & 6 are in working state. In 2010 Apple-I managed to derive $213,000. The record setter price was due to letter signed by Steve jobs. But for now this computer is expected to fetch $180,000.

For this price we would get 240 third generation iPads 😛 Jokes apart.
