New Apple I info Slashdotted[edit]

Can someone grab the audio file and cassett pic from and post it here. Looks like its significant to this article. Lostwars -- (talk) 14:29, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Could someone fix the formatting?[edit]

I show the sidebar on the right as slightly overlapping the text. I am using Firefox Will 05:12, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

I put in a section break before the Reference section. I don't know if that helps you, but on Internet Explorer, it prevents the sidebar from overlapping into the References section in a visually unappealing way. Edu-Ward 18:25, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

PET vs. Apple I[edit]

The apple clearly wasn't the first computer to be useful 'out of the box'. It wasn't sold with a monitor or a keyboard, or some kind of storage input device such as a cassette drive. Therefore, the first "Works out of the Box" computer was the PET, unveiled 6 months before the Apple II and a few months after the Apple I.

Apple I current price[edit]

An original Apple 1 computer sold on eBay for $17,950 on October 3, 2009. Item number 320431509242 -- SWTPC6800 (talk) 03:20, 12 October 2009 (UTC)


Is it true that the Apple 1 still needed a keyboard to connect with? Why is that? I mean if you look at the picture in the article, that computer appears to have a built-in set of keys on its surface. (talk) 13:53, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

After having a look in Apple Inc., I found that the Apple I which has a built-in keyboard on its surface is actually a remodelled version made by someone who purchased a unit. I wonder if there are any pictures of the Apple I in its original form? (talk) 23:44, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Would it be possible to address what the computer could do, and what users did with them? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:34, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

An Apple 1 just sold for $212,000[edit]

Satanism comment[edit]

I haven't read the Steve Jobs biography, so maybe someone could provide a reference, but the statement in here is that Steve Wozniak was a satanist. This is a pretty substantial claim, and since it is cited as the reason for the price of the original computer, is relevant to the article. That said, the claim must have a substantiating source. I've seen several pages' previews from a Google search, but none from websites that I would venture to visit from work. If there is no good source for this statement I submit that it should be removed. Without a source, all it does is make an unverifiable claim that smells of vandalism. Daytonduck (talk) 20:59, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Neither Jobs nor Wozniak are or were satanists. Wozniak originally wanted to sell it at cost, but Jobs wanted to make a profit, and chose a price that allowed for a 33% markup over the $500 wholesale price. Neither knew the significance of 666 in Revelation. Wozniak later recalled that he liked "repeating digits" and that the phone number for his dial-a-joke service was 255-6666. Or so it is written in Jobs' biography. WTF? (talk) 17:14, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
It's not vandalism the original price was $666.66 2601:C:5600:27B:9A3:A075:2A97:D9F4 (talk) 18:39, 18 January 2015 (UTC)Johnnie DeHuff

release date[edit]

The info box lists a released date of April 11 but the article states July 1976. Is the former when the design was finalized? What is the preferred date to use? For example, most items such as records and movies will use when they go on sale. 22yearswothanks (talk) 19:32, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Hardware description[edit]

I dearly miss a description of the hardware. A 6502 cpu seems to have been used, like in the Apple ][ , but what was its clock frequency? How much ROM/RAM were present? Was the RAM SRAM or DRAM? &c &c ... Jan olieslagers (talk) 14:35, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Another Apple I at an e-waste story?[edit]

A guy at the ACCRC told me in conversation pretty much exactly the same story back about 10 years ago. Someone dropped off an Apple I and toddled off. - Richfife (talk) 04:24, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
