The computer that sparked the revolution in home computing!

Bid to win one of the first models of the Apple-I computer, originally owned by friend and associate of Steve Wozniak, Adam Schoolsky.

The Apple-I Computer is considered the origin of the personal computer revolution and was built in Steve Jobs’ parents’ home on Crist Drive in Los Altos, CA.  200 were hand-built by Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs' sister, and their team, but it is believed that less than 60 are still in existence.

The “Schoolsky” Apple-I is an original Apple-I “NTI” board initially acquired by Adam Schoolsky from internal stock sans Integrated Circuits when he was an employee of Apple. This Apple-I was authenticated by Apple Expert and Historian, Corey Cohen.
