News Tech: A mid-1970s Apple-1 computer prototype that was authenticated was sold at auction for about $700,000. According to a statement released by Boston-based RR Auction, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs used the prototype in 1976 to show the Apple-1 to Paul Terrell, the proprietor of The Byte Shop in Mountain View, California, one of the first retail locations for personal computers worldwide.
