If you are an Apple devotee, and/or like vintage hardware, and what you can actually do with it, you may like this system. If you remember using these, programming these, and enjoyed writing your own programs, you may like this system.If you would like to go back to play a lot of fun early games, and not have a system that spies on you and demands you do updates all the time, you may like this system. This is a vintage 1983 Apple 2E system, that has been mine since then. I used it during high school, I programmed on it, I wrote reports on it, I played games on it. I learned how to set it up and get it working. It is a system that works.
What all comes with it: The Apple 2E computer with expansion boards and a large cooling fan for the motherboard, attached as you can see in the pictures. Powers up fine as the pictures show. The type III Apple monitor with power cord and video cord.Appears to be just fine, screen works great. Two 5.25 disk drives plus cables to attach onto disk drive expansion board.
I plugged both in, and was able to confirm both drives work. If you find they do not, make sure the connections on the expansion board are good. I put one on too loosely and had problems, then pressed it in better and it worked fine. Drive 1 (A) is your boot disk.
Drive 2 (B) is the secondary. There is an outlet in the back of the Apple 2E to plug the cable into.
It has a partial roll of thermal paper loaded, plus I have a box of ten (10) full thermal paper rolls so you are not going to run out of printing paper for a very long time. The manuals for the Apple 2E, and Using the Apple 2E book are included. The manuals for the monitor, the disk drives and the Silentype printer are all included. The manuals for DOS 3.3, Apple Pascal and Microsoft Softcard system are included. And not only is this documentation included, the books and manuals are in excellent condition.
They appear still in new/ like new condition. Several DOS 3.3 system master disks, CP/M disks, Print Shop, GBASIC, a games disk, and a number of utilities.
A certificate for DOS 3.3 showing Apple Company's original company incorporation date of Jan 3, 1977. All original packing lists for the computer, the monitor the disk drives, and the printer.
Original Boxes for the Monitor and Apple 2E computer. A third box contains the two disk drives and the software and books. The original boxes are still in very good condition.
This computer has been stored in cool dry conditions for over 25 years. And it powered up like it was just yesterday that it was made. You can see it is great condition. This is a piece of computing history.
You really want to be able to write programs that can control things down at the machine level, this would be a good tool for you to practice on and gain understanding of what that kind of coding entails. This is the kind of thing people who do device level coding would like to experiment with.
