History

Mitch Waite told Mike Willegal:"I bought mine from a Byte Shop in San Rafael after seeing Jobs demo it at the Homebrew Computer Club. I built a weather station on my houseboat and got Steve Jobs to drive to Greenbrae to see it in action. I wanted to write a computer graphics book and use it but he told me they had a much better Apple 2 coming out and I should come to Cupertino and he'd give me one. There is an amazing story that visit and subsequent relationship - you can read it at my ancient blog mitchwaite.com (click books). Woz modified the PIA on the board so I could control a homemade wind speed device on the roof with assembly language and the sweet 16 Assembler."


Components

White ceramic MOS MCS 6502 CPU (1576), plastic AMI S6820 PIA (date code vanished), 8 KB plastic Mostek DRAM (MK4096-16 mixed date codes 7726, 7728 and 7734). Blue capacitors.


Equipment
