Steve Jobs famously designed the first Apple computer, simply titled Apple I, in his parents' basement in Cupertino, Calif. with business partners Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. With its strange retail price of $666.66, the unit included neither a keyboard nor a monitor – customers had to add their own. Only 200 of the machines made it to market. By contrast, 3 million iPad tablet computers were sold within 80 days of its launch in 2010.
