It sounds intriguing, but I’m not fully sold. The output for the monitor is baseband video, keyboard is a PS/2, neither are current standards, and other oddities make this more of a kit computer than an Apple. Still cool and interesting, and it will generate interest for some, but I’d rather tinker with Linux and a Raspberry Pi.

The new do-it-yourself package by SmartyKit gives you all the pieces you need to build the Apple I with no soldering required.
