Apple-1 on sale - level 2
The Apple-1 personal computer will go on sale at auction. People expect it to fetch more than half a million dollars.
The computer still works. It is the only machine that Steve Jobs sold from his family home in California. Back then, in 1976, its price was 600 dollars.
The Apple-1 had incredibly low power, but its creation was a historic milestone. It was the first personal computer. The first owner of the rare computer was Charles Ricketts. That’s why people sometimes call it the Ricketts Apple-1.
Difficult words: fetch (achieve a particular price when sold), incredibly (very), milestone (point in time when something changes).
