It has now been publicized that the auctioneer entity of Christie intends to vend a computer that was constructed by the abovementioned two famous personalities. The cost at which Christie desires to vend the computer is between $160,000 and $239,700.
On reading the cost, it is inevitable that queries will pop up in the minds of the persons. The query will pertain to the nature of the abovementioned computer and its facets. What is so special about this computer? This computer possesses three capacitors and 8 kilobytes of random access memory. The computer also contains a printed circuit board that has incorporated 4 rows A-D, and an Apple-1 motherboard.

It was created by Steve Wozniak and subsequently sent off from the garage of the residence of the parents of Steve Jobs.
