An electronic recycling shop, CleanBayArea, is now auctioning one of the limited edition of Apple 1 computers for the price of $200,000. It is said that it was delivered by an older woman whose identity is still unknown. At first Victor Gichun, the vice president of the said company, couldn’t believe what he found and thought it was fake. The company’s policy is to give the 50 percent of all items sold back to the woman.
This is a very rare opportunity for the mysterious woman who drop that vintage Apple 1 computer to CleanBayArea after she cleaned her late husband’s garage. Thus, she didn’t know the value of the stuffs she put in the box which later she brought to the recycling shop. Further, that woman didn’t want to be issued with tax receipt and didn’t want to give her contact information that is why locating her is quite difficult.
For the history, there are about 200 Apple 1 computers that are created by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in their garage and these machines are extremely valuable. Furthermore, the invention of the Apple 1 computers gave a very big contribution to the world of computers today.
