An interview with Ray Borril, founder of the Data Domain and one of the first resellers of the Apple I. In the era of the Altair, Borril "listened to Steve's sales pitch and it seemed like a good idea to be able to offer a computer that did not require any soldering skill."
The total coast for this system, motherboard and extra 4k of Ram memory and the cassette interface board, if you paid the full price for this Apple1 system it would have cost $861.66 and it had no graphics. The Apple 1 computer outputted 40 characters per line to the screen. This also did not include a Keyboard, the two A.C. power transformers needed, the tape cassette recorder and a case to put your Apple computer system into.
