An Apple-1, a rare model of the first computer produced by the now-iconic tech firm, fetched $375,000 in an auction this week, according to Boston-based RR Auction.

本周,美国波士顿的RR拍卖公司以37.5万美元(约合257.8万元人民币)的高价拍出了一台罕见的初代苹果电脑Apple-1。苹果科技公司如今已成为行业标杆。

The computer was among 175 of those sold by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak from their production in a garage in Silicon Valley in the early days of Apple in 1976 and 1977.

1976至1977年,苹果公司创业早期,其创始人史蒂夫?乔布斯和史蒂夫?沃兹尼亚克在硅谷的车库里生产了175台Apple Apple-1,该拍卖电脑便是这175台中的其一。

The model originally went for $666.66 when it was sold by the Byte Shop computer store in Mountain View, California in the 1970s.

上世纪70年代,加州山景城的Byt电脑商店出售这款电脑时,其售价为666.66美元。

Jobs and Wozniak initially designed the Apple-1 as a bare circuit board to be sold as a kit and completed by electronics hobbyists, but Byte Shop owned Paul Terrell agreed to buy 50 if they were fully assembled and did not require soldering by the buyer.

乔布斯和沃兹尼亚克最初把Apple-1设计成一个光秃秃的电路板,作为一个工具包出售,由电子爱好者自己完成组装,但是保罗.特雷尔开的Byte Shop公司同意购买50台,前提是它们完全组装好,不需要顾客再动手。

According to RR, the computer sold this week was restored to original running condition in June and included the original Apple-1 board, a cassette interface, keyboard and other equipment.

据RR公司称,本周售出的这台电脑在6月份恢复了原出厂运行状态,其中包括Apple-1原装电路板、盒式磁带接口、键盘和一些其他设备。

The selling price was far from a record, however: another Apple-1 computer went for $905,000 in 2014.

这个价格是不是已远远打破了纪录?不过,它还不是最贵的,2014年的一台Apple-1成交价高达90.5万美元。
