Default Re: Making a computer.

The word VERY LARGE reminds me of the EDSAC. Sigh...

Anyways, I am going to buy the CPU, so skip the design talk, please

Anyways, Im not doing this alone.
And Like I said, I know the things I am about to encounter.
alright. well one thing is certain: you cannot hand make any of the parts, maybe with the exception of the case.

even wozniak and jobs contacted manufactuers to produce their apple computer kits

Your right. Ram is probably the easiest.

Unless we're talking about scaling so large that a transistor is the size of a fingernail (slight exaggeration).

Found a little something that might give you some insight or ideas on how you'll make each part. Not sure where you can get bare PCB for doing this. I imagine they are only sold in bulk.

So you have absolutely no hope for me? Your acting like I have never seen a wire in my life. I have been working with electronics, and not those basic tech ed light-up wooden figures. I mean PDA electronics, I mean making a robot, I mean fixing faults in a motherboards wiring. and all without going to college.

I think with some time, I could do this.

Actually, you seem more knowledgeable. I mean, I am not even in high school yet (no, I am not 12, or 11, or anything below that). You pointed out everything I need to know. Thank you

Coquitlam has a different grade level >> grade 9 isnt even high school

Also, I am thinking right now on a name and casing design. I dont care about modern or anything.
Plus, the OS is boggling me too.

Default Re: Making a computer.

oh of course. But I think everyone has the idea of a computer like we use. My understanding here is that what you will have assembled after all this labor will most not likely be running a copy of windows and playing Crysis, lol.

I have an understanding of what you are looking to do and I do believe it is possible, but the problem I forsee is obtaining resources. In such a mass-production market, how does one obtain a single unit of a necessary item? A printed circuit board, for instance. It's impossible to layer your own wafers without a machine.

On the other hand. Before there were machines to make machines, who built the first. It had to be possible. What the first handbuilt was, I'm not sure. Do a bit of googling and see what you can come up with on the first hand built comp and moreover, how it was done and if any blueprints were salvaged or digi-copied.
