Two of these Apple-1 computers were not know to exist by historical collectors prior to this event. Their are less then 50 of the original Apple-1 computers existing out of a total production of about 200 in 1976. Steve Wozniak was the sole designer for the Apple-1 and the original Apple-2. He also wrote the software operating system and a version of Basic to run on these machines. It must have been a great meeting with Woz and the others. All the folks bringing their Apple-1 computers had early connections with the Apple Company.
The 5 Apple-1 computers at this gathering should be unique from almost all the other known Apple-1 computers. They were signed at the event by Woz and Wendell Sander (an early Apple employee).

The mystic and excitement that follows the Apple-1 computers continues to grow and get more interesting everyday with new stories and facts from the owners. It will not be too many years and all the original owners of the Apple-1 computers, developers and employees working at Apple during the Apple-1 times will be gone. Lots of exciting history and stories about the original Apple-1 computers are still being generated and much of it now makes the national or international news. I have several Apple-1 computers in my historical collection and look forward to the buzz about these Icon's of the microcomputer revolution,
