    For those of us who are not lucky enough to own an Apple I, Vince Briel sells a clone called the Replica I: . In addition, he also sells several other Apple I items (a Replica I-Plus and a Replica I Tenth Anniversary Edition, plus several peripherals for the Apple I/Replica I.) He also sells other antique computer clones (Altair, KIM and OSI Superboard.)

    I do not work with, or for, Vince, I just met him several times (before he moved out to Cali) and he is a really great guy.
