Although there were similar computers on sale from other manufacturers, Apple-1 came with a pre-assembled motherboard, which "put Apple far ahead of its competitors", according to Christie's auction listing.

It is speculated that the recent Apple-1 sold at a lower price as it wasn't a "pure" machine with extras like a green case and a different computer chip.
