First Appl computer sells for $374,500

Most of the time we spend tons of money on new technology, but it turns out that someone was willing to pay nearly $400,000 for a motherboard built way back in 1976. But it's not just any motherboard. It's one of only a handful of the very first Apple computers left, handmade by the Great and Powerful Woz.

Sotheby's auction house sold the computer for more than twice its estimated price this week. It's one of only 200 Apple 1s crafted by Wozniak back in '76, and one of only about 50 still in existence. This one is particularly valuable because it's one of the few Apple 1s left that actually still works.
To be honest, I'd have expected it to go for at least $500k, especially since it's one of 50 that still works nearly 40 years later

Why don't the owners bring the non-working ones into the Apple store to be fixed?
