Isn't this the third time this case comes up on the forums?

Anyways, even some of the Norwegian news-sites mannaged to pick this one up. Also, certain news sites includes information on who the buyer (an Italian businessman) is. According to the buyer's brother, the buyer "Loves computers".

I'm sorry, I must have missed it then, I've been traveling a lot.
If so, one of the moderators might be so kind to delete the thread.

It sold for $212,267.00 US. That is well over four times higher than what I remember it selling for maybe 18 months ago.

See people, investing in Vintage Computers is like money in the bank, lol.

IF they get any more expensive maybe Steve Jobs will hit his garage and make a few more. :)

No Jobs wouldn't know how to build any computer. Woz was the engineering brains behind the Apple I and II. Besides Jobs loves the Mac more than he ever did the Apple I or II, in fact he did his best to kill the Apple II line as quickly as possible once the Mac started selling well. In fact if he'd had his way there never would have been a GS, of course he saw that as a way to entice II users over to the Mac, since it used a GUI similar to the Macs.
