The laptop computer was used by Clinton in 1998 to send the first-ever US presidential email. The device has been sold for USD 60,667 in an online auction, the Boston auction house that handled the transaction said on April 17, 2014.

RR Auction did not disclose the name of the buyer of the still-functional Toshiba Satellite laptop that Clinton borrowed to email veteran astronaut John Glenn, who was orbiting earth aboard the space shuttle Discovery.

Reports also claim that the laptop belonged to White House physician Commander Robert G Darling of United States Navy Medical Corps.
