Replica Apple 1
A reproduced Apple 1 board, which has been reconstructed into a fully working machine by David Williams, who has done a superb job of populating the board, attaching it to a smart base and power supply, and also has supplied a full travel keyboard.
Originally designed and built by Steve Wozniak in 1976, the Apple 1 Computer, shortened to Apple 1 was a desktop computer, and the first product by Apple.
Wozniak's friend Steve Jobs wanted to sell the machine, and part funded the project by selling his VW Microbus, Wozniak sold his HP 65 Calculator.
The machine was first seen at the Homebrew Computer Club in California in July 1976 and was discontinued in September 1977, shortly before the introduction of its successor the Apple II.
There are thought to be just 63 Apple 1 machines in existence, with only 6 verified as working.
The last auction of a working machine by Christies in London fetched $365,000 dollars.
A working prototype, dubbed the holy grail of computers, built by Steve Jobs himself sold for $815,000 on August 26 2016.
