Wired has a story on it.
that thing looks old.
Those things are sweet. I saw and (don't tell anyone) touched one at the smithsonian in washington.
I saw the one in the Smithsonian too.
You touched it?Wasn't it in a glass case?
i hope this one fetches more than the last one. it looks like it belongs in a museum, so cool.
boggles the mind to think all apples came from that computer.
ah sweet my dad had one of them, i think it still might be around somewhere.. ill have to have a look for that.
Re: I saw the one in the Smithsonian too.
nope. i thought it would be, but there it was, in all its glory, just sitting on a table behind a barrier thing next to a some other cool stuff. i could touch it by simply leaning over. it was really nice. too bad i forgot my camera. some of the keys were missing, though.
I'd still take that over a P4 any day.
Where is the monitor? Or should it be connected with a tv like the C64?
these PCs were home hobbies at the time, thus there were no 'monitors' in the sense of standardized CGA etc.
just prob a coax out to a standard TV set.

ahhh, a classic. Those things hardly sold at all, that is why they are so rare. And they didnt come with a case, so many probably never survived more than a couple years. Especially after the apple II craze. Woz designed that computer you see there. What a brilliant man, computing for the masses!
It would have ended up being a Hewlett Packard, if the people there didn't refuse to use Woz's design. They thought it wasn't a marketable idea. Now look at them.
Did anyone else play snoogle, karateka, lode runner, ultima, wizardry and sammy lightfoot on the the first apples?
it was assembled exactly a year before i was born
i think that's a sign to buy it...
edit: oh, that's a visitor pass. still, it's kind of a sign, right?
how much do you think it will go for?
$15 - 20K with all that it has prob.
last mobo that sold worked, but didn't go 4 much. this one 'looks' the part IMO.
I palyed Lode runner II on my apple IIe
it went 4 $14000
A computer in a wood case? What kind of cooling can you get from that?!? That thing must have been hot as hell! Oh wait, those only had what, a g-1? I guess it wasn't that hot. (just kidding). I can't beleive it went for $14000. I should dig around in my schools grave yard and see if I can find one. I could use that kinda cash!
