Woman threw out rare Apple worth $261,000


CALIFORNIA: A recycling centre in the Silicon Valley is looking for a woman who dropped off an old Apple computer that turned out to be a collectabl­e item worth $US200,000 ($261,470).

Victor Gichun of Clean Bay-Area said the woman dropped off boxes of electronic­s that she had cleaned out from her garage after her husband died.

Recycling centre workers discovered an Apple I (one) computer (pictured) inside one of the boxes. It was one of only about 200 f first-generation Apple computers made in 1976.

Mr Gichun sold the computer to a private collection and he wants to split the proceeds with the mystery donor.
