You could own Apple's very first computer (for just $1.5M)

It's not uncommon to see old Apple products resurface for auction, nor is it rare for them to sell for more than the original RRP. But it isn't every day that we see an original, fully functioning Apple I (or Apple 1) up for grabs – and if a current eBay listing is successful, it'll have fetched a whopping 2,250 times the original asking price.

Yep, for just $1.5M, you can own the very first Apple computer. And while it might not be a patch on our best laptops for graphic design in terms of raw power, the Apple I is one of few computers that, in the words of Indiana Jones, belongs in a museum. Which is exactly where you'll find the five other identical models known to exist.
