Christie's auction house is doing another computer history sale.

All the press today is focused on their Apple 1.  For the record, Apple 
1 systems typically sell on eBay and among collectors and hobbyists for 
$15,000-$25,000.  Usually one or two per year come around.  Sales have 
been on the low side lately because of the economy.  Even the 
deep-pocket people aren't spending too high.

Christie's plans to START their bidding at $161,000.  Yet the Apple 1 
they're selling is not particular special (it's a high serial number) 
and it's been altered from original condition.

Insanity reigns.
