What, a microcomputer with a 22 bit bus? It isn't that uncommon these days... Heck, some have 64 bit buses! ;^)

Oh, speaking of older hardware, I was flipping around the applefritter website, and the moderator (and Apple 1 Replica book author Tom Owad? from memory) mentioned in one of his posts that the replica described in his book will cost around $100 to build. That is about the same as the Replica 1 offered elsewhere for $120 (kit) $150 assembled - keyboard, case, power supply and monitor extra (just like the original ;^)...
