This 1986 model was the last iteration in the classic Apple IIe line, back when Apple was just a computer company. Many found their way into schools and some reading this might remember playing games or programming in BASIC in that environment.

On offer here is the computer and one disk drive but minus a monitor. (The TV in the picture is just there to show you it works). However, as you can see, the computer can be plugged into the composite video input of any TV or composite monitor, where it will show a monochrome image. Actually the machine CAN show colour, but only when used with a monitor designed for the Apple II line, like the Apple Colour Monitor.

The unit is very tidy, and works 100%. Until recently this has been my main Apple II machine. Inside the case is also a Super Serial Card. For the dedicated, this opens up the possibility of making you own disks from those disk images on the Internet (see http://adtpro.sourceforge.net/). In fact I’ve used this very machine for that purpose. I’ll also include a PRODOS boot disk and the game shown (Apple Panic) to the successful buyer.

For the discerning collector looking for something really pristine, I’ll just mention a few things for the sake of full disclosure. Overall the case is in very good condition but there are some minor scuff marks on each side of the top (see photos). Next, the case and keyboard had a de-yellowing (retrobright) treatment a few years ago. Some of the keys were a little overcooked in this process and the two shift keys and the enter key on the keyboard are somewhat streaky (see photo). The case still has a mild dose of yellowing but it’s not significant. Given it’s hard to find a computer this age that doesn't look like it’s suffered years of abuse these are minor cosmetic issues.

In short, it’s a great little machine will grace any collection, make a good retro-gift, a conversation piece in the home or office or simply be used to relive those days long past. Feel free to ask any questions.
