Apple II Forever

It’s pretty rare indeed to come across a vintage computer that’s over 20 years old – and even rarer these days to find one in its box, unopened. Ask Dan and Kathryn – they’re the proud owners of a mint condition Apple //c scored on eBay. They paid well more than a //c goes for – but this one still has the new computer smell, warranty card and everything neatly packed. It’s like opening a time capsule to computing in 1984.

The Apple II was my first real exposure to computers. In fact, the first computer I used to write a report was an Apple //c,. I was so impressed with the word processing capabilities of Appleworks, that in due process I purchased my own Apple // – the Apple IIGS.

Apple II’s were great computers – and I still have my tricked out IIGS, in the hopes that one day, I’ll be able to show it to my daughter.

Stay ‘tooned, :)

    Well, there’s also strip poker games for the Apple ][ series. I played that when I was a teenager (well, okay, but the game got boring quickly and it was more fun to hack and see the pictures without having to play poker).

    Bilestoad was one of the coolest games…

    One friend and I sat down on a weekend and played all 150 levels in Lode Runner… That was a lot of fun. And Night Mission was the best pinball game. I still remember that *chunk* *chunk* *chunk* sound of the bonus bombs being counted off…

Tell me what you think!
