Unboxing the Apple //c


What do you do when your first computer was an Apple //c and you find it on eBay, unopened, for $2,000? You unbox it, of course.

Feast your eyes on this Flickr conflagration of red-hot //c unboxing pix including manuals, the 40/80 key, and a sense that damn, we’re all getting old. I actually agree with Joel at BBG about this: the Apple line from the 1980s was overpriced and, to my untrained eye, underpowered. I didn’t even like using the stainless steel tank Apples in the library and bought into Atari hook, line, and 800XL sinker.
