The Apple Computer 1, or Apple I, is an 8-bit desktop computer created by the Apple Computer Company in 1976. It was designed by Steve Wozniak.
Together with Steve Jobs, Wozniak's friend, the pair decided to try and sell the computer. To finance the manufacturing, Jobs sold his VolksWagen Microbus, and made a few hundred dollars. Wozniak sold his HP-65 calculator for $500, and the pair had enough money to produce a prototype for show at the Homebrew Computer Club in Palo Alto, California.
In 1977 the company produced the Apple II, which is referred to as being part of the 1977 Trinity of computing together with the Commodore PET 2001 and the TRS-80 Model 1 from the Tandy RadioShack company.
