Complete System from the original owner!
In 1979, Apple offered the Apple II Plus which featured Applesoft in ROM, so it didn’t have to be loaded from cassette or disk along with more RAM and some other enhancements over the Apple ][. While the brand new Disk II drive was available at almost $500 each, Apple still did not have a monitor (televisions or 3rd party monitors were used) nor a printer. The ][ Plus owners that didn’t want to use a television as a display, looked to other manufactures including Zenith for a solution. There was very little to no commercial software available, so you had to write your own. Then you joined a User Group to trade software and a library was formed.
- Apple ][ Plus 48K
- Disc ][ interface card
- Parallel printer card (Tymac)
- Ramboard (Con Comp)
- 2 – Disk ][ Drives
- Epson MX-80 dot matrix printer
- Zenith 80 column monochrome monitor
- TG Products joystick (2)
- Power, monitor and printer cables
While all of the hardware is from the original owner, over time, software gets lost or goes bad, and who knows what happens to the manuals. In addition to the Zenith Operating Guide and Epson MX-80 User’s Manual, I have put together the most manuals and supplements I may ever have for the Apple ][ Plus:
- Apple ][ Reference Manual
- Addendum to the Apple ][ Reference Manual
- Of Vital Importance To Apple ][ Plus Owners
- The Applesoft Tutorial
- Applesoft ][ Basic Programming Manual
- The DOS Manual
- Disk II Installation Manual (not pictured.
- Installation Instructions for the Disk II cable
A floppy disk holders contains about 50 disks including an original DOS 3.3 System Master and DOS 3.3 Basics. There are some games and miscellaneous programs, new blank disks, and many “library disks” of the era which all have multiple programs on them – one is a printer disk for the MX-80. Note that I have not tested every disk, so there may be a bad one or one that will not run on the ][ Plus.
Cosmetically everything is in excellent condition, there are only a couple of minor scuffs that I have seen on any of the hardware. The joystick does not work. I am including a second one that has had the pins bent, so they both need repair. The printer has some sun discoloration on the back. Some of the manuals are embossed with a previous owner’s name.
This system will ship in at least 3 boxes totaling about 75 pounds. Please contact me for a shipping quote or questions.
Very nice Apple ][ Plus!
Apple ][ Plus, II Plus or ][+, 48K model A2S1048. With the 16K on the Indigo Ram Board, it really has 64K! Additional features include an 820-0044-C RFI motherboard or mainboard, a Grappler Plus printer interface card and a Disk ][ interface card. Also nestled inside the case is an untested SUP ‘R’ MOD II TV interface unit.
This ][+ just came in from the original owner who has had it stored for about 20 years. The manuals, disks and cables still hadn’t turned up by the time he sold his house. I was going to offer it as a complete system (with cables), but the Zenith monitor quit working as I turned it on for the photos. What’s left is the Apple ][+ with cards, and the Disk ][ Drive. The pristine Epson FX-80 is for sale separately.
Condition of this Apple ][ Plus is excellent. Minor flaws include: very small scuffs or wear marks on either side of the keyboard, a couple of minor scratches, one screw is missing from the bottom, the black fasteners at the back of the lid are no longer attached on one side or the other, but all 4 pieces are present. The speaker may have been replaced, as one wire is twisted together. The Disk ][ Drive is pristine, it looks like it just came out of the box! It will ship with a non original System Master DOS 3.3 disk.

A2S4000 – A2S4100
The Apple IIc, Model A2S4000 is the compact Apple II. The only true portable computer in the Apple II Family and the very first portable model from Apple. Introduced in 1984, this computer was not only portable, but aimed at first time users with it’s true plug and play usability. With no user interface slots and the only Apple II with a built in 5 1/4″ disk drive, all it needed was an external power adapter and a monitor to be up and running. The equivalent of five slot cards were built in to the Apple IIc motherboard. An Extended 80 Column Card, two Apple Super Serial Cards, a Mouse Card, and a disk drive controller card. This meant the Apple IIc had 128 KB RAM, 80-column text, and Double-Hi-Resolution graphics built-in and available right out of the box. All you had to do is plug in the printer, mouse or other accessory without worrying about an interface card.
The Snow White coloring scheme was only used on this model in addition to the the brand new ImageWriter II and other IIc specific accessories. It came with a beige keyboard, disk drive door and volume control.
In 1986, the Model number changed to A2S4100, and it got a new motherboard (ROM 3) and keyboard. You could continue to get (different) beige color keycaps, door and volume, or the new platinum color like the IIGS was introduced with. The case remained Snow White.
There are a total of 4 different ROMs plus a serial port timing fix.
- ROM 255 – the original. A serial port timing fix was available for affected machines
- ROM 0 – added Unidisk 3.5 support among other things and was a ROM chip swap plus a motherboard modification.
- ROM 3 – added a memory expansion socket and a redesigned motherboard. This came with the new keyboard in 1986.
- ROM 4 – a ROM update to fix the memory expansion bugs in the ROM 3 motherboard.
Select below. All are clean and tested to work and have all their feet. Expect minor scratches and scuffs, anything major will be noted. Coloring is in comparison to similar computers, monitors and other accessories on hand. All come with ProDOS and DOS 3.3 disks.
***While the photos are representative only, all of this batch is in the above pictures***
A) A2S4100, SN F6473CP. ROM 3. Platinum, Light to medium discoloration. “80/40” and “disk use” printing on cover partially unreadable.

E) A2S4000, SN F5444CC. ROM 255. Beige. Nice.
***All sold WITHOUT power adapters. There are a limited number of good, working external power adapters or “bricks” for these, so they are being sold separately here.
Apple IIc Plus A2S4500. The last Apple II model and the fastest. Introduced in 1988, this portable computer retained the true plug and play usability of the IIc. The equivalent of five slot cards were built in to the Apple IIc Plus motherboard. An Extended 80 Column Card, two Apple Super Serial Cards, a Mouse Card, and a disk drive controller card. This meant the Apple IIc had 128 KB RAM, 80-column text, and Double-Hi-Resolution graphics built-in and available right out of the box. All you had to do is plug in the printer, mouse or other accessory without worrying about an interface card.
Changes from the IIc include:
Internal 3 1/2” drive
Internal power supply
Platinum in color
Mini DIN 8 serial ports
This IIc Plus works great. It does have overall medium discoloration, with it leaning towards severe on the left side. I think it is a little darker than the pictures show. Standard computer power cable is included.
Apple IIe, Model # A2S2064, P/N 825-0406-A.
Then they came out with a new plastic beige case and design with a lid that just snapped on to the back of the case. The keycaps changed to black letters. Memory chips started becoming soldered on to the motherboard instead of socketed. An enhanced //e was introduced in 1985 which changed 4 chips on the motherboard including the processor (65C02), 2 ROM chips and the character generator. A kit was available to upgrade existing ][e’s. Gradually other chips became soldered on as well. This //e was offered until 1993 alongside the final model, the Platinum IIe with extended keyboard.
There are other differences when shopping for replacement parts as they used up existing parts and had multiple suppliers, but these are the complete computers.
***Photos are for illustration purposes only and NOT what you will receive***
Select below: All are cleaned and tested to work. All //e’s will come with an 80 column/64K memory card (bringing it up to 128K). All have feet. Likely missing any number of slot covers in the back.

Expect at least minor discoloration on everything except maybe the early cases and it may or may not be noticeable depending on the coloring of your drive and monitor. Also shipping with some System Disks including DOS 3.3, the latest Apple Utilities and ProDOS.
Note: Any reference to Quark here, which was a popular software package, is simply that a few keycaps were replaced to aid in functionality in the program, nothing else. The P key, for example still says P on the top, but has the word “Print” on the front of the cap.

Apple IIe, Model # A2S2128, P/N 825-1351-A.
Introduced in 1987, the Platinum Apple IIe with an extended keyboard was introduced and was the final model of the Apple IIe line. The case color was changed from the traditional beige to Platinum, and the bottom and back panel were gray in color rather than the brown of the standard IIe. They shipped with 64k Ram, 40 column graphics and a 65C02 processor. They were all “enhanced”.

All of these //e’s are identical except for the case and keyboard coloring. They will vary from very nice to pretty much severe discoloration. Most stickers, stencils and marker have been removed, but that area is usually whiter underneath.
A – SN E6501PH. 1986 Rev E motherboard. Case and keyboard are pretty orange, probably severe. Evenly colored except where a sticker was on the right side and a lighter area to the left of the Apple badge on the case.
B – SN E736273. 1986 Rev E motherboard. Case and keyboard are pretty orange, probably severe. Evenly colored except where there was permanent marker in the center of the lid.

The keys are a bit lighter overall than what they should be and also a couple of keys are a little blotchy or have blossoms. The bottom row of keys has a line – a crease that goes from the spacebar over to the zero key on the keypad.

Apple IIGS, A2S6000.
GS – Graphics and Sound! The 16-bit Apple IIGS when introduced was the most advanced personal computer available (in my opinion). While backwards compatible with the Apple II line, it surpassed the Macintosh at the time in many areas. First with the color GUI, first ADB keyboard and mouse, and best known for it’s state of the art sound and music.
The GS has built-in ports for the keyboard, printer, modem, monitor, mono monitor, floppy disk drive, joystick and headphones. Interior slots are used for such things as adding a parallel printer, an internal modem, networking cards, hard drives or SCSI cards, and accelerators.
