The Byte Shop’s main claim to fame is that it was the first computer retailer to order the Apple I computer. Owner Paul Terrell paid Jobs and Wozniak cash in advance for 50 assembled systems, and his order launched Apple as a real business.
The Byt-8 was the “house brand” system. It was also sold under the Olson name.
