Answer: $666.66

The wholesale price of the computer (Apple's first product) was $500, and a retail markup of one-third equalled $666.66. Wozniak said he liked it because he was into repeating digits and it was easier to type.

"We didn't know the number had religious significance," Steve Wozniak, Apple's co-founder, admitted in an interview. "We found out."
