New York/London/Paris/Hong Kong – An original Apple computer, now known as the Apple-1, sold for $387,750 at Christie’s auction of vintage tech products, making it the highest priced item to ever be sold through Christie’s new online-only platform. The Apple-1, one of the first 25 Apple-1’s ever assembled, inscribed with the serial number 01-0025 in black ink was designed and hand-built in 1976 by Steve Wozniak, who later signed his work “Woz.” Christie’s saw traffic to the First Bytes online-only sale page from 96 countries with 77% of the viewers new to Christie’s.
Note to Editors: Christie’s holds the record for the most expensive item sold to an online bidder - $9.6 million for Edward Hopper’s October on Cape Cod sold in November 2012 at the American Paintings sale in New York.
