5. The Alto

If you have never heard of this, don’t feel bad, neither did we. Made by Xerox, that company who now creates copiers. In 1973, they released The Alto, it was a hit due to its unique interface and attached laser printer. Have one of these? Well now you are looking at collecting anywhere from 5 to 10 thousand dollars.
