Apple 1 sold for $213,000

Sure, it works a thousand times slower than an iPad but an original Apple 1 computer sold for a lot of money at a Christie's auction. The winner, Italian businessman Marco Boglione, is said to really enjoy computers. Well, I hope so. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was on hand and agreed to write an autographed letter to the winner. Wozniak built the computer back in 1976. Boglione will have to build his own case for the computer, it comes as a kit. The Apple 1 does not support Flash.
