    One of the few remaining examples of Apple Inc's first pre-assembled computer, Apple-1, sold for $905,000 at an auction in New York on Wednesday, far outstripping expectations.

    The relic, which sparked a revolution in home computing, is thought to be one of the first batch of 50 Apple-1 machines assembled by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Steve Job's family garage in Los Altos, California in the summer of 1976.

    Auction house Bonhams had said it expected to sell the machine, which was working as of September, for between $300,000 and $500,000.

    The buyer was The Henry Ford organization, which plans to display the computer in its museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
