Want one of Apple’s first computers? Indy man wants you to have it

A piece of techie history with Indy connections is up for grabs – for a hefty price.

One of the first Apple computers — a demo unit of the Apple-1 that has been in possession of an Indianapolis resident for more than 40 years — is on the auction block.

The fully-functional Apple-1 is leading an auction of Apple collectibles by Boston-based RR Auction

West side resident Doug McIntosh — his name endearingly similar to Macintosh, Apple’s branding for its personal computers for years before being shortened to Mac — said he was pretty much given the machine in 1978, not long after the company introduced the world to its PCs.
