  Original Published: 6/25/2013  Apple fans will wait in line for hours to buy the newest I-phone.    And you should see what some of them are willing to pay for a 37-year-old computer!   An auction house in New York has opened bidding on one of the few remaining original Apple One computers.   Christie's Auction House expects the computer to sell for between $300,000 and $500,000.   As you can see, there's not much to it.   The circuit board, built in 1976, didn't even have a casing.   Only about 200 of these computers were ever built.   It was the first product designed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who built it in Steve Jobs' parents' garage.
