Guys, keep your current whatever Apple product you have, because in years time, when you need money, you can sell it for this much.

If it wasn't for Steve Wozniak, their wouldn't be Apple... Notice how in the graphics demo, whose picture came up first "1st". Nobody but the" Woz", da MAN!!! But at $666. back in 1976, shows how consistently high the price has been at Apple. 666 'o,o' the devil.

One thing I love PA for is, humor. Articles are neither dull, nor too funny. Just the right sprinkled humor. Yeah but can't say this applies for all the editors.

I thought the original Apple computer was cased inside wooden chassis.

Not even close since millions of people adopted it. This is a classic collectors item as it was VERY niche. Nobody was into computers when this was released whereas everyone was into smartphones when the G1 was. There were MANY before it. Doesn't matter it was the first Android phone the same principles don't apply there. People spend ridiculous amounts of money for paintings that hang on a wall to be admired. This will share the same future. As it should. It wasn't the first computer by any means but one of in not the first personal computer packed in such a manner that still gets shipped today. Monitor, PC, input devices...

Not really sure what the first smartphone is considered...

My teached had an Apple computer from the early 80's. Obviously a newer version. She couldn't use a newer computer and yet I couldn't figure out how to use hers! lmao
