"Thanks John for the comment on the Apple II prototype pictures (and the mention on RMC 386).  The machine belongs to Tony Diaz.  He had it at KansasFest 2013 - I'd forgotten about the pictures I took until recently when I was going…"

"Thanks! That would be great! I'll email you after I get home tonight. I'm 99.9% positive that's the key I'm missing, but it doesn't hurt to double check."

"If one of those platinum one turns out to be broken, I may be interested in the "/" key off the number pad. :)"

"I always drive to KFest.  I plan to hold on to two or three Apple IIs and the rest are coming with me.  Whatever doesn't get taken at Rockhurst goes to eBay."

"I blame Navis for ruining KFest for me by sending the Retro Computing Roundtable guys. It used to be a quiet gathering of friends but now they're going to have a Commodore lover (shiver) there.  Ew. Way to ruin it Navis. Of…"

"I guess with three or four that means you're driving!  And it does mean that only half of the collection is (sniff) relocating. Make sure they go to a no-kill shelter. Part of me is excited for NOT having to be in KC in 100 degree…"

Quick bio

I got my first Apple II+ in 1981.  With the additional 16K memory card, it came with a grand total of 48K of memory.  My father also splurged and bought the Disk II drive, which had been recently released.  Later, we upgraded to an enhanced Apple IIe (not the Platinum model).

 

My recent vintage Apple passion has been the Apple ///, Apple's first business computer and also the young company's first failure.

Wow, I'm really enjoying your 6502lane site! I've been an Apple II fan since High School and I once had a job writing software on an Apple III for a Real Estate company. Good times.
