A fully operational Apple computer that company co-founder Steve Jobs sold out of his parents' garage in 1976 for $600 fetched $365,000 at Christie's on Thursday. The Ricketts Apple-1 Personal Computer, named after its original owner Charles Ricketts, is the only known surviving Apple-1 documented as having been sold directly by Jobs to an individual from the Los Altos, California family home, according to the auction house. The price fell shy of Christie's estimate of $400,000 to $600,000 and was far less than the$905,000 paid by the Henry Ford organization in October for one of the computers. Fewer than 50 original Apple-1s are believed to be in existence of the few hundred originally produced.

$365,000 is the around the average price for homes in Denver , Colorado. Which one would you prefer?
