It is estimated to be sold between $4,00,000-$650,000 (Rs 2.81 to Rs 4.56 crore). Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak created the computer, when they were working out of Jobs’s garage and had the idea to produce the first personal computer sold with a fully assembled motherboard. The Apple-1 systems were still sold without casing, power supply, keyboard or monitor, but offering a pre-assembled motherboard was something that put Apple far ahead of its competitors. “In all, about 200 Apple-1 computers were made and advertised at $666.66, a … [Read more...] about First Apple computer to be auctioned online

You know that it was an extraordinary and flawless demo from the outside, but what you don't remember is everything else that was launched —nor how part of the keynote did go wrong.Steve Jobs with the original iPhone Context is everything.

He said that "Vista and the PC continue to have the central role," though he also claimed that Windows Vista was "the highest quality release that we've ever done."
