We also know the condition set by Paul Terrell who had just founded his specialist Byte Shop retail operation : he agrees to take 50 motherboards at $ 500 each on the condition that the manufacturing time is less than thirty days. The two Steves mobilize their relatives to meet this requirement in their apartments and garages, without having time to arrange a workshop. In July, the Apple 1 was available for $ 666.66, a figure chosen by Wozniak to bring good luck.
Some of the 200 Apple 1 are still functioning without having undergone repairs. Their price at auction is growing. One of the 50 units supplied to Byte Shop was sold for $ 900K including premium by Bonhams on October 22, 2014. It was accompanied by its original Apple 1 cassette interface.
Another remarkable Apple 1 is estimated $ 400K, for sale by Christie's in New York on December 11, lot 34. The invention of the two young engineers attracted some curiosity. This unit was sold by Jobs to a neighbor in his parents' garage at Los Altos on July 27, 1976.
The motherboard is accompanied by the Apple 1 user manual. Its operational condition has been verified by an expert.
