RR Auction has provided an update on the rare Apple-1 prototype owned by the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

Apple-1

The bidding platform opened bids for the product in July, expecting the figure to reach at least $500K. The Boston-based company revealed that the computer sold for a record $677,196.

The copy was believed to have belonged to Jobs and was the same item that was demonstrated to Paul Terrell, the owner of The Byte Shop.

It was the same item that aroused suspicion about its history. However, RR Auctions pushed back and said the prototype was the same as in the 1976 photo taken by Terrell.

Apple-1 registrar Achima Baque said the prototype was the same, down to the fine details and how the resistors were in the same direction, angle and position as the Polaroid copies.

The winning bidder was from the Bay Area and wished to remain anonymous.
