The Apple 1 Computer - It All Started Here

The Apple 1 was Apple's first computer and was hand-built by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Steve Jobs' garage in 1976. At the time, it was priced at $666.66 and sold without any accessories, including a case, monitor, or keyboard.

I recently had the opportunity to hold this piece of Apple history in my hands. And I thought you might enjoy a close look at it yourself. I took this photo on a table with natural light coming through a window. (As you may have guessed, the owner didn't want me to walk off with it for a studio shot.)

For the technology fan that I am, this is a work of art.

Look at those big honking capacitors!!

I'm old enough to remember working on that generation of technology, although I never owned the Apple I or II. TTL circuits you could fix yourself with a soldering iron, holding the solder in your teeth while you tried to get everything connected... ah, it brings back memories.

On the other hand, an iPhone made from that tech would be the size of a car. :-D
