    Damn... that's a nice piece of history conserved.

    I kept my C64, C128d and Macintosh SE aswell for sentimental reasons :hehe:

    Christies are selling an enigma machine in the same auction, which i find infinitely more interesting than an apple1.

    You'll get some pro Microsoft nut buying it and then blowing it up in a public sacrifice or something along those lines.

    What a price! Meanwhile, lots of people around the word are still starving to death.

    Yep I have to agree with you. Still I'm not surprised at the interest in the Apple-1.

    & buying a new GFX card for your computer or a new game to play rather then donating that money to a Charity is any different then in your eyes wasting £100k on a computer & before mentioning that giveing £30 to charity isn't really worth it compared too £100k doesn't really fly tbh every little helps.
    Back on topic.


    Would much Rather see this go to a Museum then a collector but like all things rare its supply and demand £100k bargain :), im sure you can spend that and get something alot less interesting, like a windows machine :p
