The Apple l, the first Apple computer made by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in 1976, is seen on display at Sotheby's on June 8, 2012 in New York City. - 

And finally, what is a vintage Apple computer worth? That question was answered by the German auction house Breker over the weekend.

A 1976 Apple 1 sold for a record $668,000. The buyer was from Asia and asked to be anonymous.

The computer sold for only $666 back in the '70s. It was made in the family garage by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak -- and it's actually signed by Wozniak. It works apparently.

Well, for 1976 it works. The auctioneers says the machine's real appeal is as a symbol of the American Dream. Two dropouts with a superb idea, they said -- and now their idea is one of the richest companies in the world.
