Original Apple 1 setup – demo of a working piece of history

This is one of 6 known working original Apple 1 personal computers from 1976. There were about 200 Apple 1 ever built and 43 units are identified to exist to date (08.2012). This Apple 1 had been originally restored and framed in 1993 by an Apple enthusiast. I restored this machine in 2012 to fully working condition (there was a faulty PROM) and attached an ASCII keyboard, monitor, power supply and an ACI (Cassette Interface). In the demo the machine executes some test programs and loads from cassette BASIC and a graphics demo.

The original Apple 1 came only as ready built motherboard: there was no keyboard, no case, no monitor and no power supply included. The buyer/user had to find and attach the peripherals himself.

The machine is pretty solid now – I booted this A1 more than 50 times in the last 2 weeks and it worked flawlessly.
