Apple IIe Unboxing

4 Jul

Found this Apple IIe, specifically a //e, on EBay. I normally would not purchase a system on eBay, however, this was a local seller so there was no shipping involved; cash and carry. The buy-it-now was $350 so I put in an offer for $150, which was accepted.

The system is in immaculate condition with the exception of the yellowing. No scratches or even dust. It was purchased from the original owner , a lady who bought I new, and from the looks of it, put it into storage after a few weeks. The peripherals came with the original boxes.

I ordered a Super Serial card on eBay for $10 which will allow me to bootstrap the machine to write disks from a modern PC. I’ll definitely be attending the vendor fair at KansasFest 2012 in hopes of finding a compact flash drive and a ROM upgrade.
