A recycling center in the Silicon Valley is looking for a woman who dropped off an old Apple computer that turned out to be a collectible item worth $200,000.
She didn't want a tax receipt or leave her contact information, and it wasn't until a few weeks later that workers opened the boxes to discover an Apple I computer inside.

Older 70-90's era, especially 80-90ish are loaded with GOLD and other awesome rare earth elements. I doubt any single unit has $200,000 worth in it lol but still, a lot of people have no idea what they have.
Pretty cool that they are even trying to find her too, hope they do!

I heard this story on radio last night. I hope she sees the story and returns to collect her bounty. How neat is it that they return half of the profits to the original owner if they come across valuable items?
Now I'm wondering if some of that junk in my attic---my Beloved has never thrown away a working computer---will actually be worth something to our great-grandchildren.
