A reader pointed us to this interesting auction of an original Apple II+ that sold for $1,414.87 on eBay. For that price, you could get yourself a nice high-end laptop or a few PS3s. Auction page. Video after the jump.

The Apple II was eventually superseded by the Apple II Plus, which included the Applesoft BASIC programming language in ROM. This Microsoft-authored dialect of BASIC, which was previously available as an upgrade, supported floating-point arithmetic (though it ran at a noticeably slower speed than Steve Wozniak’s Integer BASIC) and became the standard BASIC dialect on the Apple II series
