The first Apple computer — together with a letter signed by Apple CEO Steve Jobs to the original owner — will be sold at a London auction this month. Described by Christie’s as a “historic relic,” the Apple-1 was introduced in 1976 and sold without a casing, power supply, keyboard or monitor. But it was the first personal computer with a fully assembled motherboard, at a time when personal computers were sold as self-assembly kits.
