What to do with my Apple IIe
Posted by: earache

Cleaning the garage today and came across my old IIe system, complete with 2 floppy drives, RGB monitor, Kensington System Saver, ECHO speech synth, joystick, Senior PROM, Itoh Prowriter printer, many issues of Hardcore Computerist and tons of floppys filled with who knows what. This system was last used by my wife in college in '93-94 as a word processor.

Doesn't appear like IIe stuff is moving much on ebay, so there's really no point in selling it. I could just stuff it back in the garage for another 20 years or I could just take it to the recycle center. Part of me just wants to keep it because of the good memories, but with every passing year I wonder whether the disks are even viable. Wouldn't it be cool to fire it up when I'm 70 and see it run... guess I've answered my own question. What would you guys do?

Hell, I'll rent it from you, just to open a couple of old disks, and send it back!

I'll loan you Mrs. Buzz, she's a magician; she can make anything disappear.
Good luck packing it away for another twenty. Enjoy.



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

I'd keep it , just like I am doing with the one I have. And, yeah, I am also wondering if the floppies are still any good.

I have my //c in storage I'm the basement. Original boxes too. Just can't part with my first computer, purchased in 1984 with my Bar Mitzvah money.

I have the same problem parting with:

IIe
IIc
IIgs

and all the software on floppies and 3.5 disks.


I also have a 6500, 9600, and a MDD 867. I may e-cycle these three but am hesitating on the 9600.
