Briel Computers is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Replica 1 by releasing a limited edition (and new revision) of their insanely popular Apple 1 compatible computer. The first 50 boards make up the limited edition 10th Anniversary Replica 1; each will be serialized and sport a collectible red PCB. After those are sold out, the new 10th Anniversay Edition Replica 1 PCB will revert to its usual green color.
The new board has the following changes:
Look for a review of the new Replica 1 10th Anniversary Edition in the next issue of Juiced.GS later this year!
Rich Dreher, creator of the popular CFFA line of Apple-1 and Apple II expansion boards, has announced that cards from the next run of 200 CFFA1 are now available to order for $109.95 + shipping.Â The CFFA1 is compatible with Vince Briel’s Replica 1, Mike Willegal’s Apple 1 Mimeo, the Obtronix clone, and of course, the original Apple-1.
Visit Rich’s CFFA1 Project page for more details.
Mike Willegal posted via his blog that the Mimeo Apple 1 replica kit will soon be available again. Some changes in how the kits are obtained are in the works though. Instead of providing everything Mike will sell the Mimeo mainboard, but the components will be available as a pre-picked kit package from Unicorn Electronics. You can get all the details here.
Or, you could go this route. Â¡Ay, caramba!
This morning, a PDF scan of a book containing the schematics of the Apple II clones (and other computers) produced by Brazilian company CCE was made available via bittorrent.Â The MC-4000 and MC-4000 //e â€“ clones of the Apple II Plus and IIe, respectively â€“ are covered, as well as the MV-12, a composite monitor CCE sold with their Apple clones.Â CCE also made a computer called the MC-1000, which was not a clone of any US produced computer, but which used a BASIC that appears to be designed to closely resemble Applesoft.
The final two pages of the PDF give background on the origin of the scans, and the Portuguese version of Wikipedia has some information for the MC-1000, MC-4000 and MC-4000 //e.Â None of this is in English, but Googleâ€™s translator does a decent job.Â Â 1000bit also has pages for some of the CCE clones.
If you have a bittorrent client, you can download the 287 MB PDF here.
UPDATE:Â If you’d prefer to avoid the p2p route, you can get the file directly from my Dropbox at this link.
