Apple I

Launched: July 1, 1976
Specs: 4 KB memory, 1 MHz processor

When Steve Jobs announced the iPhone in 2007—above, beneath a photo of himself and Steve Wozniak with an Apple I—he said it was as revolutionary as the first Apple Computer. Only a few hundred of those computers were produced. They became obsolete less than a year later, when the Apple II came out. Today those computers are collectors' items. One sold at a Christie's auction for $210,000 in October 2010, according to the BBC.
