英语新闻:第一代苹果拍出天价

2014-10-24    来源:Reuters    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

周三,一台第一代苹果电脑Apple-1在纽约邦瀚斯拍卖行以905,000美元高价成交,远超此前市场预期的30万到50万美元。

Apple-1曾引发了家用电脑的革命。而这台被拍卖的电脑被认为是第一批50台预组装Apple-1中的一台。这50台电脑据称均由苹果联合创始人史蒂夫-沃兹尼亚克于1976年的夏天在史蒂夫-乔布斯家的车库内完成组装。

One of the few remaining examples of Apple Inc's first pre-assembled computer, Apple-1, sold for $905,000 at an auction in New York on Wednesday, far outstripping expectations.

The relic, which sparked a revolution in home computing, is thought to be one of the first batch of 50 Apple-1 machines assembled by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Steve Job's family garage in Los Altos, California in the summer of 1976.

Auction house Bonhams had said it expected to sell the machine, which was working as of September, for between $300,000 and $500,000.

The buyer was The Henry Ford organization, which plans to display the computer in its museum in Dearborn, Michigan.

"The Apple-1 was not only innovative, but it is a key artifact in the foundation of the digital revolution," Henry Ford President Patricia Mooradian said in a statement.

There were few buyers for the first Apples until Paul Terrell, owner of electronics retailer Byte Shop, placed an order for 50 and sold them for $666.66 each.

After that initial success, Jobs and Wozniak produced another 150 and sold them to friends and other vendors.

Previously, a working Apple-I was sold by Sotheby's auction house in 2012 for $374,500.

Fewer than 50 original Apple-1s are believed to survive.
