Early //e

Recommended Posts

I had the chance to pick a //e locally and saved the shipping cost that would have kept me from buying it. The seller only powered up to see the indicator light and that was it. I took a chance and bought it.


Fired it up on my big screen and she flickered at first, shut her down and fired it back up. Yes we are rolling!



Checked the rom version, not sure if this is correct for the //e and seeing done for the //c  getting 255 but 193 is the version. 119663807_Appleiie(3).jpg.ff5e1f4b579f752dfc225412855372b9.jpg


Getting under the hood was interesting, quite dusty. I noticed the 1982 year of manufacture, I assume this was late 82 as most early //e's are of 83 vintage.






Cards are pretty standard, the 80, super serial and IO. However looks like we got a nice Teknika RGB7 video card. Anyone know of a good NTSC or composite monitor to pair up with?




Gotta love that termination clip on the 80 column card. ;-)


All in all this scratches the retro itch! Noting like getting back to basic and interfacing with the old analogue days. Gonna go disk-less for now and play with some basic scripts. Maybe stream them to my Panasonic cassette deck just for fun.
