This Infographic Depicts The Most Expensive Tech From Your Childhood and Beyond

By the very nature of technology it is forever changing. And while most of it loses value faster than a home bought during the mortgage crisis, some of it retains and increases in value quite significantly, as evidenced by this infographic.   For instance, an Apple-1 Computer, which cost $666.66 dollars in 1976, recently sold for a whopping $650,000.  That’s an increase in value by more than 20,000% after accounting for inflation, which would raise the price to $2,700 today.   Unfortunately, the original NES has not enjoyed the same uptick in value, probably because they’re fairly ubiquitous.  Sad, because I own one and continue to play it to this day.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
