6502/6800 CPU's

The Apple 1 computer used the MOS Technology Inc. 6502 cpu chip. When converting to a 6800 cpu, you pulled the 6502 and just plugged in the 6800 cpu into the socket and added the other needed parts and you then had a 6800 cpu Apple1 computer. Notice the date on the MOS 6502 cpu in my computer.

This is the original MOS Technology booklet.

The dotted in portion on the circuit board is where the components go for the 6800 cpu if you use it instead of the 6500 cpu. There was also some jumpers or pads that you had to deal with.
