Computerworld - Sotheby's will put some Apple history on the block next month, including one of only six working Apple-1 personal computers. The auction house has estimated the motherboard will sell for up to $180,000. Also up for sale: A memo written by former Apple CEO Steve Jobs during his time at video game maker Atari. The Apple-1 -- which consisted of a circuit board hand-built by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak -- first went on sale in July 1976 for $666.66. About 200 units were produced. According to the Sotheby's catalog listing (download PDF), there are about 50 surviving Apple-1 computers, but just six known to be in working condition.
