Steve Jobs' First computer To be auctioned for £260,000

A fully operational Apple 1, Steve Jobs' first ever computer, will be auctioned off in Germany in just a few days time.The rare machine is one of eight working models in the world, and is expected to fetch £262,000 ($317,693).Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak created the personal computer in 1976 - but produced only 150 models to sell to their friends and family. The Apple 1 comes complete with original documents and even records of telephone calls with the company founders.

It was designed and built by hand by Wozniak in the Silicon Valley.

He began marketing it along with Jobs through the electronics chain Byte Shop in 1976, after the retailer bought the first 50 units.

They originally went on sale for £545, (US $666.66) as Wozniak liked repeating numbers.

Despite it being the first PC ever that was ready to use with monitor and keyboard access, it was delivered as just the motherboard.

This meant users had to get hold of a power pack, keyboard, monitor, and cassette recorder of their own.

Most early computers used different motherboards for each component, but Wozniak decided to put them onto a single board.
