$400,000! They could have got a new iPhone for that!

Interestingly, they used a Panasonic TV(?) as the display.

The company was reinvigorated in the late 1990s, and Jobs was brought back into the fold as the chief executive

This should say "because Jobs was brought back". Apple only had 3-4 months of cash left when he was brought back.

"...which was hand-built by company founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak 45 years ago,"

45 years ago? If the Panasonic video monitor (included with sale) was from 1986, then 35 years ago would be more accurate. Perhaps simple arithmetic is difficult?

Steve Wozniak assembled all of them. They threw Jobs name to the story to increase the value. Jobs never built or programmed anything. He was indeed the driving force for the business, but let's have a little honesty for a change.

Woz definitely designed and programmed all the early Apple I and II computers. But they mostly sold the Apple I as the components to hobbyists.
