Apple I with original packaging going up for auction

updated 03:26 pm EDT, Tue October 15, 2013

Computer could fetch as much as $500,000 or more

A working Apple I will go up for sale by Germany's Breker auction house on November 16th, according to an announcement. Making the item even rarer is that it includes the white box the system originally shipped with, and that it's listed as 46th out of the first 50 units hand-assembled by Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Ultimately a total of just 200 Apple Is would be built, most of which are non-functional due to wear and their use of obsolete parts.

The auction unit also includes original software, and a signature from Wozniak. Official estimates are calling for a sale price between $300,000 and $500,000. In May, however, Breker sold another Apple I that fetched $671,400, implying that the new unit could sell for as much or more.
