Ray Remembers When

Apple II Computers

My memory of Apple II computers revolves more around what I owned and used at home than what I was selling every day, and the newest one I ever owned was an Apple II. I never had a IIe, a II+, a IIc or a IIgs. I had 128k of memory, an 80 column card, printer interface card, color monitor and the upper/lower case modification so Apple Writer worked. My favorite printer was a CITOH because it could do anything the manual said it could do by using Apple Writer's control code features. It was the printer that Apple chose to make into their printer, starting in about 1981.

Anyway, the point is that my "old Apple II" is just an Apple II to me. I have to admit that I was jealous of the improvements made in the IIe, especially the keyboard. This made Apple Writer into a whole new ball game and essentially made my old faithful obsolete.
