  1. Original Apple I Computer Up for Auction, Starting at $160,000

    Fancy auction house Christie's is presently auctioning off an original Apple I computer from 1976, lovingly designed and handcrafted by Apple's founding genius Steve Wozniak while Steve Jobs sort of sat around and did nothing.
