A rare functioning Apple-1 computer which had been gathering dust in a garage for decades has sold for £373,000. ($500,000)<br />
<br />
The pioneering machine is one of the 200 'motherboards' Apple founder Steve Jobs and his associate Steve Wozniak designed in 1976.<br />
 <br />
Around 70 Apple-1 computers are known to exist today and this is one of only six in a specially-made wooden case.<br />

It was originally owned by an electronics professor at Chaffey College in California, US.
