What people say
«Steve Wozniak designed and hand-built the original back in 1976. Anyone who wants to assemble their own today can buy the parts and instructions from SmartyKit.»
Cult of Mac

«As a true fan, if you cannot afford a genuine, cult and rare Apple I at $300,000... the good news is: SmartyKit will launch a DIY version!»
Thierry Gaillet
Instructions
We created online step-by-step instruction with video, photos, schemes.
Also we could introductory Zoom call to help you in getting the best experience.

You follow steps, check that step is successful with LEDs and then move forward. If test is not passed – you check again the instruction until the problem is solved.

Also there is power on self-test (POST) program that checks all modules of the computer.

Average assembly time is 8-10 hours, so you could say you'd need a weekend to assemble it. If you would need help with assembly you could use our email or Twitter. Also we plan to host Zoom webinars to answer common questions.
