The Apple-1 was designed and hand-built by Steve Wozniak, and his friend Steve Jobs had the idea of selling the computer. To finance its creation, Jobs sold his only motorized means of transportation, a Volkswagen Microbus, for a few hundred dollars, and Steve Wozniak sold his HP-65 calculator for $500. It was demonstrated in July 1976 at the Homebrew Computer Club in Palo Alto, California. Since money was an issue, Steve Jobs had to handwrite at least one of the ads, and this one could be yours, if the price is right, during the Dec. 5 Bonhams auction.
