The Apple 1 was originally released back in 1976. Only 200 were produced and somewhere between 30 and 50 are still in existence, though as mentioned above, only six are believed to be working. Apple 1's have a history of fetching large sums of money, regardless of whether or not they are working.

 

Back in December, a working Apple 1 sold for $640,000. Before that, a non-working Apple 1 went to auction with an estimated value of $125,000. Finally, before that, an Apple 1 sold for $375,000.
