Apple II torn down, restored to glory

Todd Harrison got his hands on an old Apple II and meticulously restored the computer to working condition. He details the process in a lengthy blog post that covers everything from cleaning the external case to inspecting the layout of the logic board.

It’s more than just a simple tear-down, Harrison’s description is filled with historical information about both the components and programming language that make up the Apple II. There’s also gorgeous high-res photos of the disassembly process, so you can marvel at the intricate design of one of Apple’s early model desktop computers.

You can check out the narrative of the restoration on Harrison’s website and watch a video walk through on his YouTube channel.
