Explain Why did you choose to design the computer around the MOS Technologies 6502 microprocessor?


Because it was there. Because it was new. Because a few of the other members of the Cambridge University Processor Group [CUPG] were going on about it being easier to interface to circuits. I guess I don?t really know precisely why I chose the 6502 ? maybe we just had an affinity!

It cost quite a lot back in 1977/78 when I bought mine ? which was a wonderful white ceramic part with gold (coloured?) legs and lid.
