I picked up an Apple II clone last week, and I'm in the process of re-storing it.
Has anyone heard of the Orange Peel by the Canadian company Orange Computers inc.
All I could find was an ETI article about it (attached).
I decided to re-cap it before turning it on, it's only a $25 order from Digikey (including the original Zenith monitor).
I didn't think to take pictures before dissembling it. But here's the main boards:
I intend to dump any ROMs as soon as my new programmer comes in, my old serial programmer is in a box
somewhere and I wanted something USB anyway.
Sins it has no basic ROM and can only boot from disk I've started designing a version of the Brain Board.
" The Brain Board is a firmware card for the II that allows you to do several tricks that are difficult to do otherwise, such as booting up a IIplus or IIe directly into cassette Integer Basic, and it also offers a way to run a mostly-compatible emulation of the Apple I. (IE, the "Woznium Pack".)"
I got Mike's approval to sell a few too, once I've tested the board (and anyone is interested) I'll make a run of them.
Version 0.2, I already have ideas for an improved 0.3
