People normally toss out computer manuals, but someone just paid nearly $800,000 for one.
Someone shelled out the money for a rare Apple II computer manual during an auction. The manual was signed by Steve Jobs and one of the company’s angel investors in 1980.
RR Auction said the manual was originally owned by someone named Julian Brewer. Brewer’s father negotiated exclusive distribution rights for Apple in the United Kingdom in 1979.
Inside the manual was a note to Julian which reads:
“Julian, your generation is the first to grow up with computers -- go change the world!”
