Apple 1 is today a true rarity. There are few working copies out there, and those that are provided – they are ridiculously expensive.
Now writes Cult of Mac to a particular specimen will be on show. The case of a unit that belonged to himself, Steve Jobs and the computer will be on display at Seattle Computer Museum.
And the piece has an interesting history. It would in fact have been thrown out in 1985 in connection with that Jobs left Apple. A group of engineers was assigned one of these, a man named Don Hutmacher, picked on the computer and save it from a terrible fate.
Unfortunately he passed away last year, and the computer discovered by the family away forgotten in a garage. Since then it has been handed over to the museum, which displays it for the world.
In addition to Steve Jobs, Apple 1, the exhibition is also an Apple II, IIe, IIc, Apple III, Lisa and the Macintosh 128K, as well as more modern models.
