$671,400 for an Apple Computer

Would you pay $671,400 for a personal computer? You probably wouldn't want to pay even one hundredth of that, even for a top of the line computer with maximum RAM memory and hard drive space. Especially on that is out of date.

Well guess what? An Apple I computer, also known as an Apple-1, just sold for $671,400 to an Asian collector through an auction held by a German company. This was one of the original computers sold by Steve Jobs and created by Steve Wozniak back in 1976.

The original sales price for these computers was $666.66 and later on in 2007, the collectible price for these computers was $15,000 to $25,000. Not such a bad return, going from about $20,000 to over $670,000 in just six years. That's an 80% average annual return!!!

Check into a Hotel Get a Gold Plated iPad

At the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai (that's the one shaped like a giant sailboat), when you check into a hotel, you receive a gold plated Apple iPad. [Thanks for finding this, Gizmodo.] The gold iPads are used as a "virtual concierge," providing info about the hotel and its amenities. On the gold backing of the gold iPad, it has the Burj Al Arab logo.
