Apple I Computer Overview (Video)

This video shows the original Apple Computer, named as "Apple I".
The "Apple I computer" was released by the Apple Computer Company in 1976.
"Apple I" computers were designed and hand-built by Steve Wozniak, a friend of Steve Jobs.
It was demonstrated in July 1976 at the Homebrew Computer Club in Palo Alto, California
The owner of the computer store "Byte Shop" was impressed by what he saw and promised to buy 50 fully assembled computers.
The Apple 1 went on sale in July 1976 at a price of US$666.66
About 200 units were produced.
Apple I computers contributed significantly to the microcomputer revolution.
The Apple I was a fully assembled circuit board containing more than 60 chips. However, to make a working computer, users still had to add a case, power supply transformers, power switch, ASCII keyboard, and composite video display.
Steve Wozniak built the Apple I to run BASIC, so games could be programmed and played on it. It was a game machine for the most part.
It had 6502 Microprocessor and 8KB RAM.
The peripheral equipment such as power pack, keyboard, monitor
and cassette recorder had to be obtained personally by
the user.
And, Apple I computer production was discontinued in September 1977.
Right now, only few Apple 1 computers are available in working condition. So, they are selling at very high price through auctions.
