For charity purpose, a fully functional Apple I computer which was built in 1976 by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is going to be auctioned through Charitybuzz next month in September.

A report for Business Insider states “The Apple I is being put up for sale by David Larson, a former Virginia Tech professor who bought the computer from Adam Schoolsky in 1994 for $3500,”. “Schoolsky, who was a friend of Apple co-founders Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs, gave Wozniak the Apple I computer as a gift”.

As per recent talks, all the funds raised from the auction will go to the Foundation for Amateur International Radio Service, Ltd (FAIRS) which is a Virginia based non-profit organization that provides education and other services to individuals, emergency radio equipment, communities and governments in developing nations.

Apple I PC is also known to be the company’s first personal computer which was hand built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in the confines of Jobs garage. It is also the first computer which made it different from its competitor’s computers as it has its own motherboard even when it lacked the required casing and power supply. The success of the computer is mainly credited to the force that made regular efforts and turned Apple into the personal computing industry.

Till now, there are as many as 60 Apple I computers that are still in existence. The machine (Apple I) which is going to be auctioned next month was originally sold for $666 over 40 years ago and it is one of just eight that is still in working condition.

As per the report, Apple I computer will hit the auction room on September 12, 2017.
