  • Original owner / still have my IIe and IIgs. IIe has been in daily use / on the desk since 1989.

    QQ: Why do you still use the IIe over the IIgs? Any benefits that the IIe has over the IIgs?

    I think its a familiarity /personal preference thing, nothing scientific. I just always liked the form factor of the IIe better. I like the keyboard better, and I never really used or needed the GS-OS interface much. I Found myself staying with PFS write and the older version(s) of Apple Works. All my favorite games are IIe games, and I ran into a few minor compatibility issues with the IIgs here and there.

    With all that being said, I have the IIe and IIgs side by side on the desk, and use a composite to HDMI and SCART to HDMI to feed video output to a modern LCD. In that use case, I love how the IIgs can 'fake' the green phosphor screen color, and it is certainly faster for accessing BBSes, using 68k.news, and the like.
