Apple is known for making history by inventing the future, but even its designer could not have predicted a new record shattered on Saturday as a special one-off red version of the new Mac Pro
(which is not officially available for sale yet) was sold at a charity fundraising auction
for $977,000 -- an all-time record for the priciest personal computer ever made or sold. A couple of other items
also designed by Sir Jonathan Ive of Apple and designer Marc Newson also fetched record sums.
