My latest aquisition - finally an Apple ][ Not a ][ plus, not a ][ europlus, but a straight Apple ][ from 1979 : It cleaned up pretty well actually, after a bit of a wipe down. Shame about the hole in the case (right hand side above keyboard). The original owner also installed phono jacks in the sides for the game paddles, but I should be able to fill the holes and touch up the paint. Bottom of PSU - May 1979 (I recapped it!) : Mainboard date code - week 20 1979 : Rev 4 Mainboard (part number 820-0001-04) - Rev 0 eludes me, but this is as close as I can get for now : Disk ][ controller and 16K language card installed (giving it a total of 64K RAM) - it also came with a Z80 CPM card, serial interface card, and a 128K RAM expansion card. The language card contains the Autostart ROM, which blanks the screen on power-up, displays APPLE ][ centered on the top line, and looks for a disk controller to boot from. Without the Autostart, an Apple ][ will boot to the 6502 monitor. The Autostart ROM was standard on the ][ plus and later, along with Applesoft BASIC, whereas this machine has the earlier Integer BASIC ROMs on the mainboard (and the Integer BASIC version Autostart on the language card). Fun fact - the Language Card was so called as it was included with the Pascal compiler - as far as I know, that was the only way to get one (the Apple one at least). The Pascal compiler required the extra RAM : A2S1 serial number denotes an Apple ][ - the ][ plus and europlus were A2S2 serials : The raised power light was dropped on later models - people were apparently confusing it as a normal key (it is solid in that you cant press it down, but the cap is removable to change the bulb) : Special thanks to Jeremy for organising the shipping and getting it to me safely.
