The story of Apple and Commodore is a little more nuanced than what you''ve written in this entry. For a more complete account, I suggest you check out Brian Bagnall''s book _Commodore: A Company on the Edge_.

Jack''s (actually, Chuck Peddle''s) interest has nothing to do with this machine''s "popularity".

I owned an apple 1. It came with 4 K of memory and I added another 4K so I could load Basic, from tape of course. I sold it to a computer shop in Reseda California about15 years ago, for $100. I wish I had it back now.

There is a site on the internet that sells a replica of the Apple I that you can use to try it out yourself:

Thursday 5th August 2010

At Auction on Artfact LIVE, August 16 is AN APPLE I (APPLE-1) EARLY PERSONAL COMPUTER WITH OPERATION MANUAL, designed and hand-built by Steve Wozniak, Apple Computer Co., Pala Alto, CA, c. 1976, the fully assembled circuit board is displayed as a wall plaque with metal frame and measuring 9 x 15.5 inches. History behind the item - About 200 units were produced with an estimated 30-50 still known to exist.

Check it out!!

According to Wikipedia, the Apple I was basically just a motherboard, without case, without keyboard, without monitor. It seems like a bunch of work to me! Nowadays, you could buy a "build-your-own" computer kit, but it wouldn''t be any kind of work like this, hoo hoo!

No, the Apple I did not come in a case. Whoever bought it, and wanted to, would have to build it. The wooden case is just a surviving, and pretty, example.

Is it made out of wood?

There is a real Apple 1 at the Science Museum of London. I was shocked when I saw it! :P

I am into the apple I and similar microcomputers, and out of nostalgia I want to design an apple I-based microcomputer with a casset interface and make my own programming language and burn it in a ROM (as crazy as it sounds, it's true!) Although the only way I have ever even played with an apple I is through an emulator, I still think they are very cool indeed!

COUMO: the way to save data in the apple I was in audio casettes, with a ordinary casette recorder and the casette interface, visit

what was the EPROM card for???

Counterfeits... hmmm, maybe some creative people could clone the motherboard then stuff it with appropriate IC's of that era and voila! A new generation of Apple 1s. Getting the BASIC PROM content could be trickier tough (and getting software for it :^).

i was looking at the Apple 1 and figured out that it had some memory and a keyboard...but what was it used for?
What did the user do with the saved data? could you save data?
please explain why anyone would spend money on this computer!

The Apple 1 is one of the most sought after collector items for vintage computer collectors.
It's value is around $30,000.Only around 250 were ever sold.Beware of counterfeits though.
Most counterfeits are just Apple 2's components in a wooden box and are easy to differentiate from an original apple 1.
The original Apple LISA(The first model only) can be worth upwards to $10,000 with original packing manuals,software and in excellent operational condition.
