How about securing a functional Apple I for $ 1.5 million?

Have R $ 1.5 corn left and do not know what to do with this money? I could suggest you to perhaps invest that amount by purchasing the first Ma-made computer, the legendary Apple I.

Just kidding, the fact that there are only a few units of Apple's age-old hardware (which are occasionally auctioned off and raised very money). According to Achim Baqu's Apple I records, approximately 200 computers were manufactured, with 80 still in existence.

The Apple I to be auctioned this month was manufactured in 1976 and purchased by a man named Rick Conte the following year. Decades later (more precisely in 2009), Conte donated the computer to a nonprofit organization and it was not long before a private buyer collected the relic; In 2014, the piece was purchased by the current seller of the device.

Although nearly 43 years have passed since the manufacture of this Apple I, Christies (the British arts and auction company) claims that the computer is fully functional and includes original components, as well as Apple I memorabilia and several additional accessories.

This includes the first manual issued by "Apple Computer" as well as documents (copies) of the partnership agreement between company founders Ronald Wayne, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, as well as the business cards of these executives, among others.

Christie?s estimates that, in the most optimistic scenario of all, this Apple I unit could raise even $ 2.4 million no auction, which will start on the 16th next.

In 2014, we commented on the case of an auction of Ma's first computer that was sold for US $ 909 thousand (about R $ 3.5 million, currently). Well, back to the initial question: any with corn (s) left?
