Apple I Computer (1975)

In 1975, Steve Jobs (21) and Steve Wozniak (26) got together and built and marketed the Apple I computer. Wozniak and Jobs formed the Apple Computer Company on April Fool's day.

The Apple I debuts at the Homebrew Computer Club in Palo Alto, California. In May, Jobs sells his VW and Wozniak sells his Hewlett-Packard programmable calculator to raise $1,350 to finance production of the Apple I boards.

Steve Jobs uses his parents' garage to build the first machines. In July, the Apple I computer board sells for $666.66.
