In 1976, Apple manufactured and sold the first computer ever, and over the years, less than half of the Apple I computers have survived only 200 devices, but a recent report revealed that one of these devices will be sold at an online auction From Thursday.

A rare Apple I computer, the first PC ever manufactured, will be sold by Christie’s International Auction House.

Apple’s Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak designed the computer when they were working outside of the Jobs garage and had an idea to produce the first PC that was sold with a fully-packaged Maserbar.

The Apple I went on sale in July 1976 at a price of US$666.66, because Wozniak “liked repeating digits” and because of a one-third markup on the $500 wholesale price.

The Apple I systems are still sold without a casing, power supply, keyboard or screen, but the introduction of a pre-assembled “Motherboard” put Apple at the forefront of its competitors.
