information. To learn about components on the Apple-1 mainboard click here.
All Apple-1 were produced in two batches spring and fall 1976. There is no serial number issued by Apple. Apple Computer supplied only the mainboard, Cassette Interface Adapter and manuals. No case, power supply or keyboard. The Apple-1 was the first Apple computer and the beginning of a success story.
Number of existing Apple-1: It may look like many Apple-1 are available but it is getting harder to buy an Apple-1 every year. Many Apple-1 are now owned by museums or companies and will never be for sale again. Next year’s more and more Apple-1 will ‘disappear’ from the market because less private people owning an Apple-1. Someday it will be nearly impossible to buy an Apple-1.
79 Apple-1 listed. Please read comment above!
34 confirmed and 34 more or less confirmed.
07 might exist or may have been listed twice.
04 maybe no longer exist.
'More or less confirmed': To the best of our knowledge and belief, evidence is almost given or obvious. Many times current owner is unknown, pictures might be old etc.!
Working condition: Most Apple-1 could be operational again – depending on how much effort you spend or how much parts you are willing to change.
Last operation: The year of last operation is bot listed for good reason. After every power-up no Apple-1 owner would announce this to the Apple-1 Registry and this information would be obsolete very soon.
Accuracy: No guarantee can be given for the accuracy of any information. If you have more information please feel free to contact me. Many very good replica of Apple-1 exist. Even with date code correct components. Anyone interested in buying Apple-1 have to keep this in mind. Hobbyist usually building replica for private use. Even some museums using replica.
