1976: The Apple I is created. The first computer produced by Apple, it would be sold as a fully assembled circuit board containing more than 60 chips. However, to make a working computer, users still had to add a case, power supply transformers, power switch, ASCII keyboard and composite video display. Pictured here is a fully assembled Apple I computer, with a homemade wooden computer case.
