oshit. an actual apple ii+
those things fetch a pretty penny online! Like car payment level of money. I recently got Apple ii's myself. They are surprisingly fun machines.
Yeah, looking forward to getting into this thing! I wasn't actively looking for one, but it fell into my lap at the right time. 😉 As I said I've never had one of these so this will be a whole new ecosystem for me to explore. Assuming I can get it going. The homebrew scene on the "//" is massive.
It looks like the fault is in the ROMs or the RAM chips, unfortunately as I was *GENTLY* pulling out the ROMs to try and reseat them some of the pins just started crumbling in my hand. Gonna see what I can do about this.
I haven't pulled the 6502 yet but its pins look just as bad, so that's gonna be fun. Aside from that it looks pretty clean on the inside (& cleaned up nicely on the outside with a little scrubbing!)
These things are remarkably simple inside; no RF shielding, no heat sinks, no ugly ribbon cables or bodge wires connecting things, just one mainboard, a speaker, & a PSU. (And a couple expansion cards.)
Who's the DJ? I see that in the background. 😉
That would be me! I play vinyl, a modern setup using Live, or sometimes two '90s laptops running Impulse Trackers with a mixer inbetween & a bunch of outboard effects. 😉
