$50,000 can buy a rare Apple.

applegiftDo you have an Apple aficionado that’s notoriously hard to buy for? Do you have an extra $50,000 burning a hole in your pocket? Well, you can do a number of things…

All of these are great gifts (even in considerably smaller quantities) but for the ultimate in Apple fandom, you may want to rotate your eyeballs on over to eBay, where someone is selling an Apple I computer, complete with original invoice, shipping box, and letter signed by His Steveness, himself. There’s no bids on it as of this writing, and the starting bid is at fifty grand, so get your checkbooks out for this ultimate in Apple collectibles.

You can ship it to me care of OWC if the holiday spirit is upon you. ;-)

  • Looks like somebody bit on the Apple (I). Wonder if they’ll pony up the extra $3000 fee for shipping?




  • I was amused at one detail on the accompanying period Apple ad: “And since our philosophy is to provide software for our machines free or at minimal cost, you won’t be continually paying for access to this growing software library”.

    Perhaps there’s been a slight drift in philosophy since then? Though to be fair, Apple is on the whole cheaper than most competitors other than the free software movement and has doesn’t create nearly as many artificial barriers to scaling up (e.g., the mini server with unlimited user license).
