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.
