Vintage Ceramic DRAMs

When I first restored my Rev 0 Apple II, I used DRAM chips from an Apple II plus. While this worked fine, I wanted something a little more authentic to the machine. I was looking at Geoff Harrison’s Apple II #97 and noticed some nice NEC uPD416’s so I pick up a set and put them in.

Brain Board – Turning the Apple II Into an Apple 1

May 26, 2011 Leave a comment

This week I received a beta Brain Board from Mike Willegal. This board came with the Wozanium pack which will cause an Apple II to function like an Apple 1. This a great way to get the Apple 1 experience without having to build a replica. The assembly took me about 40 minutes and it works great!
