Computer sold by Steve Jobs out of his parents' garage raises $365,000 at auction | ZDNet

A big discount relative to the $905K paid for a different Apple 1 by the Henry Ford Museum in October

"Despite the machine's rarity the computer sold below the $400,000 - $600,000 estimate. The Apple-1 sold for $666.66 when it first went on sale in 1976.

Apple-1 systems were hand built by Wozniak and supplied as a pre-assembled motherboard, without a case, power supply, keyboard or monitor. The computer sold yesterday is fully operational, having been tested using Microsoft Basic, and an original Apple-1 Star Trek game. It is housed in a medium blue coloured metal box and has a period Datanetics keyboard in a wooden housing. Also included is the original Apple-1 Operation Manual."
