Apple ///

 
 

Powered by a 2 MHz Synertek 6502a, the Apple /// was expected to do for the business users what the Apple II did for the home hobbyists. Unfortunately, the Apple /// showed numerous first-generation shortcomings just as the IBM PC arrived on the market. Even after steps to correct these, Apple /// never shook it’s bad first impression. It withered on through two revisions before finally being put to pasture in 1984.


This 256 KB Apple /// and it’s associated software were acquired as a gift from generous Corvallis Mac User Group member. It features a factory clock chip addition, a user-modified, double-sided floppy selection switch on the external Disk /// drive and a Monitor /// monochrome monitor.
