Well just getting use to it here. On Lj I use my baby picture. Because I am just starting out, But I may one or two that may use to show what a monster I have become.

A few pictures of my friends basement from before. He is not a mac collector. Just Apple II-IIgs.

He has sold almost all the common stuff to buy rare Apple II/IIgs items.

Take Care,

I personally think it is too common to collect Mac - Apple II is much harder to collect, especially those that still work perfectly well. :)

Hi, I didn't see your comment? I just go through the comments again... nope. Anyway, I am so happy to see your suggestion, just not sure whether I can afford it, but let's try.

I am a father trying to teach my son (and many others) Apple IIGS programming. Currently because I don't have any Apple IIGS, I use emulation for teaching. I have been hunting around in Singapore, and the best I can get is about S$450 (US$323) for a new unopened GS without monitor, cards, disk drives and harddisk. So the question is: if I need to assemble a working Apple IIGS good enough to teach my son game programming, what would be needed? I supposed we might need at least an accelerated GS, a working monitor, a sound card, a disk drive... but how much will these cost to ship to Singapore? I have no experience in computer shipment, especially from so far away. Any feedback are welcome!

Really appreciated, thanks. It really seems quite costly to try to own a GS...

Once again, thanks and appreciated!

Much easier to show you then to explain. Free posting for alot of things, in a lot of areas. Just type in Apple in the search box and you bring anything up in the for sales and related areas.

http://singapore.craigslist.com.sg/

They have them for the surrounding areas as well. But no Apple IIgs. But that change from day to day. You could post you would want one. But you still have to deal with the scammers and crooks, out there.

Not sure if they have a freecycle or CheapCycle in your area.

Freecycle is free. They can not charge for the items they offer.

You might try talking to the schools to see if they have any exchange students. If they do then you might ask if they could bring back some old compute and or parts for your son. Mailing the items in the US is no big deal.

Just trying for a way for you to get a IIgs for your son.

Take Care
