This morning Wired magazine reports plans to manufacture replicas of the legendary Apple I.
The Apple I was the first personal computer produced by Apple. Wired reports that company co-founder Steve Wozniak has approved computer technician Vince Briel's plans to produce $200 replicas of the machine. Production begins next month.
Like the original, the replica will ship without a keyboard, monitor or power supply. The technician has spent a year developing plans for the replica, which uses different components to the original, but is "functionally identical", the report claims.
"I spent a lot of time trying to get every detail so the replica functions completely identically to the Apple I," he told Wired. Briel is already taking orders through his website.
