Not content with 'just' an Apple II, I've looked to the Apple I. I've been looking at Mr Briel's computer as a potential example that I could assemble.
I'm really keen to try putting this together myself, without a kit, hoping to learn something and hopefully save a few dollars. Mr Briel's kit becomes quite expensive for me after international shipping and currency conversion.
I've put together a part list, could someone let me know whether I've made any serious errors in my parts selection? (From Mouser, in Australian Dollars)
I'm also trying to figure out the best way to get the ROM onto the 28C64. Can I use an original Apple I ROM in place of Mr Briel's ROM? If not, is Mr Briel's ROM available for download somewhere?
I don't have a programmer, so I'm wondering whether it's at all possible to purchase an EEPROM preprogrammed with the required ROM... is that possible? If not it may just be easier to start with Mr Briel's kit.
Forgive my total ignorance on all this, I'm looking forward to trying to figure this all out.
