As Mashable reported ahead of the auction, the Apple 1 computer is a low-powered PC from Apple's humble beginnings, which began with original co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. This specific computer that was up for sale at German auction house Auction Team Breker is still functioning. It is reportedly only among six Apple 1s left in existence.
The New York Times reported that the buyer wants to stay anonymous, but is a wealthy entrepreneur from the "Far East." Saturday's sale was higher than Auction Team Breker's recent sale of another Apple 1 that went for $640,000.
The Apple 1 is quite a piece of history from the Cupertino, Calif.-based company, which these days ranks among the most valuable companies in the world.
