Apple history: The 1MHz Apple I machines that now cost more than a family home


This may not look like a £1m computer, but this rather rudimentary-looking Apple I came close, selling for a whopping $905,000.

One of the most expensive Apple I computers to sell in recent years, the machine was auctioned off at Bonhams in 2014, and sold alongside a vintage keyboard with pre-7400 series military specification chips, a vintage Sanyo monitor, a custom power supply in a wooden box and two vintage tape-decks.
