Propeddle was initially intended as a replica for the early Commodore computers (PET-2001, CBM-4032 and CBM-8032) because those happen to be the first computers I ever worked on. But because of the way it’s designed, it’s really a universal platform to (re-)create many types of 6502-based computers, or design a new one. In many cases you won’t even need additional hardware (besides a Gadget Gangster Propeller Platform board): the software on the Propeller determines how the computer behaves, and it can emulate other hardware such as storage, by using the EEPROM or the serial port to a PC or other device.
