Run the Apple ][

Get your old system up and running again.

There are old Apple ][ systems, from the original Apple ][ to the last Apple IIgs ROM 3, lurking in attics, closets, basements, and the occasional store all over the world. I kept my old Franklin Ace 1000 (an Apple ][+ clone) in my parents’ attic for a decade or so, and found the hardware worked just fine when I turned it on. I’ve since acquired an Apple //e and two IIgs computers, and an Apple IIe card for a Macintosh LC. There’s lots of Apple ][ stuff out there, though Apple discontinued the IIgs in 1991, and the IIe emulator card in 1993. Searching on eBay today brings up 212 items for the string “Apple II”. (“Apple ][ doesn’t work well as an eBay search string, as the ][ seems to get ignored.)
