AN APPLE IIC.

In working order.

With all the original floppies intact. And some games.

I'm assembling it currently. Pics later.

The Monitor is having some issues, which probably have something to do with the 22 year old monitor connection cord. Fortunately, video cords of that manner are still manufactured. Will look into replacing it. Most disks work fine, except (ironically) the System Utilities disk. Fortunately again, my dad (in his geeky 80's wisdom) was able to back up the disk with a copy which works just fine. This will be a bit of a project, but I will prevail!

wow, an actual Apple II?  That's pretty awesome. It's pretty much everything PC today have tried to emulate, but never quit got it right.

I actual owned a former US navy IBM balistics PC. I still don't know how the hell it ended up getting bought by my step dad as a teenager, but it was intresting to look at. Overall though it was useless other then the intresting simulation tests for projectory. Actual, I use I had not been forced to give it up when my family was evicted. I certianly would of loved to of gone through it's memory files...
