Step-by-step: Build your own Apple 1 computer

Attending this year's KansasFest was Vince Briel, a man so in love with the Apple I that he sells licensed kits so that you could build your own, just like Steve Wozniak did. Called the Replica 1, each one goes for a modest $149 (quite a bit less than the $666.66 it originally launched for in 1976), though you'll need at least a little bit of soldering skills and know-how of the inner workings of computers to put together its 88 components.

Luckily for you and me, Computer World has an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to putting together Vince Briel's Replica 1. Other than having a little piece of history on your desk, the mileage you get from it may depend on your knowledge of programming (or ability to read Internet guides).
