Maybe instead of Apple stock, we should all be buying old Apple computers.

On Saturday, a working Apple-1 home computer set a record, selling for $671,400 at the Breker auction house in Germany, according to the New York Times.

That eclipsed the record of $640,000 for an Apple-1 set last November by the same auction house.

The Apple-1 sold Saturday was hand-assembled by Steve Wozniak in 1976 and is one of just a few of units that still exist. The auction house declined to identify the buyer.
