The original Apple I went on sale back in July 1976 at a price of US$666.66, because Steve Wozniak "liked repeating digits" and because they originally sold it to a local shop for $500 plus a one-third markup.
About forty years have passed and Apple has since become the world's most valuable company, and according to tech site Gizmag, of the 200 or so Apple I computers ever produced, only 43 have survived.
Six are still in working order and one of those is scheduled to hit the auction block in Germany next month, and if past history is anything to go by you can expect to pay at least $200,000 for the privelege.
Auction Team Breker of Cologne, Germany are the auctioneers and the package reportedly includes a Datanetics ASCII keyboard , a black-and-white Sanyo monitor and an original Panasonic 2102 cassette recorder.
Other unique features include the Apple I operation manual depicting Sir Isaac Newton sitting beneath an apple tree, which was altered in February 1977 to the logo used today.
Both the manual and the schematic bear Wozniak's signature, which will surely add a bit of value as well.
The vendor has also offered to travel anywhere in the world and correctly set up the machine for the new user if needed, as long as expenses are paid for.
The auctioneers have put together a video of the Apple I in action, which can be seen here.
The auction begins November 24, and the opening bid has been set at €70,000, which is about AUD$87,000.
On June 15, 2012, a working Apple I was sold at auction by Sotheby's for a record $374,500, more than double the expected price.
