Old gadgets that could be worth a fortune today!

Sony Walkman TPS-L2

The iconic personal music player was first released in 1980 and went on to become a bona fide tech classic. With an original price tag of around £150, fully working original players can now fetch several hundred pounds. (James Gourley/REX/Shutterstock)








First-generation Apple iPhone

Apple completely transformed the mobile phone with the launch of its first iPhone back in 2007. Costing several hundred pounds at launch, a used handset is worth very little today, but an original version still in the box could be worth up to £10,000. (Chris Ratcliffe/REX/Shutterstock)







Nintendo Entertainment System

The NES launched in the UK in 1986 and was the best-selling games console of its time. While any model in good condition will make a little money, a mint condition console in a box could be worth as much as £38,000. (Wikipedia/Evan-Amos)





Apple 1

Designed and hand-built by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, the Apple’s very first home computer was released in 1976. Anyone with one of these rare computers could make a fortune, with one model selling at auction for a staggering £296,000. (BEHAR ANTHONY/SIPA/REX/Shutterstock)





Sega Master System

Sega’s third-generation console launched in the UK in 1987 as a direct competitor to Nintendo’s NES. In good condition, in the box, a console can fetch several hundred pounds, and much more if it’s in mint condition. (Neil Godwin / Future Publishing/REX/Shutterstock)





Nokia 3310

First launched in 2000, the 3310 is more than 15 years old, but surprisingly people are still prepared to part with cash for the ageing handset. The phone’s enduring popularity means that it can fetch up to around £50 despite being woefully out of date. (Steve Meddle/REX/Shutterstock)





Apple iPod Classic

Apple’s first iPod has now been mothballed, but the 160GB version can still fetch a decent price. Any boxed and sealed Classic models, or special editions, could be worth anything up to around £65,000. (Eye Ubiquitous/REX/Shutterstock)






Nintendo Game Boy

The popular handheld console is hardly rare, but an original Game Boy in the box complete with its bundled Tetris game could still fetch a decent amount, while any limited edition versions will be worth more. (Wikipedia)






First-gen Apple iPod Nano

Introduced in 2005, the tiny first-gen Nano is now a collectible and in its box, can command a price tag of several hundred pounds. (Apple)








Spectrum ZX80

While lots of the popular Spectrum ZX models are still around, only a relatively small amount of its predecessor were ever sold, making it slightly more rare. The first UK home computer with a price tag under £100 now sells for up to £300. (Wikipedia)
