Hello guys,


I got this little Apple IIgs a while back, but I've recently been playing with it some more. I thought I'd post some photos. I found it at a thrift store for a steal. It included a IIgs, and two different floppy drives - all with their boxes. The IIgs was the most complete, with most of it's packaging and all of it's booklets and manuals basically mint!


Later on I found another IIgs at the same thrift store, it turned out to have a loosely wired PSU, but inside it had a SCSI card, a Memory board, and what I think was an upgraded Processor card. I put the SCSI card in the working IIgs and got it to even read an old Zip 100 drive as a hard drive. I was going to install a system on it, but I'm new to this stuff and it gave me an error about the installing the operating system onto the drive. Most likely the Mac IIci I used to make the boot floppy wasn't done just right.


I've had my fun with it and I may even sell it down the road - btw I wonder how much it would be worth? But I'd thought I'd share some photos of it with you guys. :)

Well thanks for the response, but I don't know if I'd part out the whole system just yet. I was hoping if anything maybe somebody would want the whole bundle. But if I decide to I'll talk to you first. [:)]]'>


I think I have photos somewhere of the cards. But I haven't even tested anything but the SCSI card, and I wouldn't want to sell you a broken card. [;)]]'> These items are in my parent's house in PA, so next time I go I'll be sure to post more info.

I believe one had the name "Zip" on it - I think it was the processor card or whatever it is. One card had a cable running to a ROM on the main board and seemed to be attached to it somehow.


I really can't remember, but by the end of this month I'll be back in PA to take some photos for sure. [:)]]'> I do believe the SCSI card is Apple branded however.


Thanks for all your interest!

Ok so I'm in PA for a few hours and I found the two cards.


Here is the information I could find by reading it off the cards, photos will follow.


Card 1:

Zip GSX Ver. 1.02 - This has a lot of switches on it and a cord leading to "CPU UI8" on the main Apple II board. It's in the third slot.


Card 2:

Applied Engineering GS RAM II (1990) - This is in the Memory Expansion port. On the back written in marker it says "THH4890".

oh come on.. "I have no idea". I highly doubt this...


The zipgsx is prob worth at least $100 USD at the other place.


EDIT: just saw the pics. Well - I'll offer $100 USD for both. Could you please keep all bidding in the thread?

If you could do some pics and keep all bids in the thread I'd be interested in making an offer.


Yeah, and I just saw a similar GS-RAM card go on eBay for around $80. Of course I'd test these before selling them. I'd probably get around to testing them in a few weeks since things with work have been busy.


After I get everything tested I'll create a proper selling post. Thanks for your interest. :)
