Woman recycles Gen 1 Apple PC, worth $200,000 [VIDEO]
One of 200, electronics recycler wants to split the proceeds with mystery woman.
Victor Gichun of Clean Bay Area says the woman dropped off boxes of electronics that she had cleaned out from her garage after her husband died.
She didn’t want a tax receipt or leave her contact information, and it wasn’t until a few weeks later that workers at the recycling centre opened the boxes to discover an Apple I (one) computer inside.
The San Jose Mercury News reports (click for VIDEO, wait for it to load at the top of the page) it was one of only about 200 first-generation Apple computers made in 1976.
Gichun sold the computer to a private collection, and he wants to split the proceeds with the mystery donor.
