their hands on, just read about - should be cool!
Have you given any thought to enclosing it in a "period" case. As you know, many were in
hand built wooden cases with the keyboard, or generic metal enclosures. I've uploaded a
I'll print out an Ad and Article on the Apple 1 from my website to have on display next to
the unit at the show.
