i have several 65XX CPUs with a motorola logo on them so i would like to say micheal brown is wrong apple just bought CPUs from whom ever sold them cheapest or had more on hand at the time in stock i have seen at least 4 logos on my 65XX model CPUs as I have many because I use the apple for a lot of stuff and motorola is the only company still making the 6502 and c02

Correction on the processor. Motorola was not involved with the 65xx line. The 65C02 was a CMOS version of the 6502 created by Western Digital Design, so properly this is a WDC 65C02. See the article on Wikipedia about it.

What's wrong, Steve? Are you feeling lonely?

The icon will come up but go no further? What the hell are you talking about? You must be talking about a 128K Mac. I find it hard to believe that you have an Apple I motherboard. You, Sir, are an idiot. The 128K Mac was not sold in the mid-70's. Try mid-80's. Damn, you are stupid!

Regarding the Apple I - there are some serious issues with the post.

The Apple I had no keyboard, mouse or disk drive and there were no mice on PCs (especially Apple products) in the mid-1970s

I'm guessing you have an original Mac from the mid 1980s, but that's just a guess.

Feel free to email me with pictures and/or a more detailed description.

We have a vintage Apple model 1 (one)from the early 70's. Model# 000000001...It has not been used since mid-70's, and it still works fine. trouble is, we do not have the floppies that fit this machine, only later model apple floppies that will not activate this computer. The icon will come-up but will go no further. Keyboard and mouse still intact. We would like to find an interested party to make a resonable offer. we live in North Hampton, Ohio. Please reply if there is any interest out there in the ether.

Unfortunately the machine was put into storage shortly after I got it but before I could photograph it.

I'll take some good pictures as soon as I get the beast out of storage! :)
