Memories of your first computer can be priceless.
Or they can cost $2,600. That's how much Dan Budiac, a New York Web developer, recently paid on eBay to buy the same model Apple II he grew up with two decades ago.
Though bidding on vintage computers can often start as low as $1, this Apple IIc from what was then called Apple Computer Inc. was more valuable: It was still in the original packaging and had never been opened.
"When this auction came along, I knew I had to have it," Budiac said in an interview. "The prospect of unboxing a mint, 20-year-old computer was simply too good to pass up."
