Apple I

(Bookmark This Page)

CPU

CPU: MOS Technology 6502

CPU Speed: 1 MHz

FPU: none

Bus Speed: 1 MHz

Data Path: 8 bit

Onboard RAM: 8 kB

Maximum RAM: 32 kB

Video

VRAM: 1 kB

Max Resolution: 60.05 Hz, 40x24 char

Storage

Miscellaneous

Codename: ?

Power: 58 Watts

Introduced: April 1976

Terminated: 1977

The Apple I was Steven Wozniak's first contribution to the personal computer field. It was designed over a period of years, and was only built in printed circuit-board form when Steve Jobs insisted it could be sold. It debuted in April 1976 at the Homebrew Computer Club in Palo Alto, but few took it seriously. The Apple I was based on the MOStek 6502 chip, whereas most other "kit" computers were built from the Intel 8080. The Apple I was sold through several small retailers, and included only the circuit board. A tape-interface was sold separately, but you had to build the case. The Apple I's initial cost was $666.66

Maybe another reason why it was called "I" was because everything (e.g.: CPU, FSB speed and VRAM size was 1 kb) :D

It was called the Apple I and it was made cuz they wanted something easier to assemble than the other Altairs and cuz the parts were getting cheaper.. :D

He got it right, its the apple 1.
