Keatah Posted August 7, 2020 Share Posted August 7, 2020 What, IYHO, is the necessary hardware to have a great fantastic authentic Apple II experience. With focus on both today and good nostalgia (for those of us that were there) from back in the day? I propose something like.. Apple II+ and Apple //e consoles 2 Disk II drives for each console with standard Disk II controller 64K/80column card for the //e 16K RamCard for the II+ Hayes Micromodem AppleCat II modem TimeMaster II H.O. Mockingboard Floppy Drive Emulator SuperSerialCard CFFA3000 TG Products Joystick Apple Joystick TG Products Paddles AMDEK color monitor 1084S monitor CP/M card RF modulator Grappler printer interface LowerCase chip Videx keyboard enhancer Epson MX-80 dot-matrix printer 5 boxes of floppy disks (or more) Stack of early Apple II manuals and other documentation ..granted all that can be rather expensive today, especially in the time that's necessary to clean it all up and make it look new again. But it's rather comprehensive covering a lot of the then contemporary hardware. Hardware that captures the early experience and air of discovery. Hardware that captures a sense of wonder and a preview of what the future would bring. But surely everyone has their favorite bits of hardware that should be added. What is it? Discuss!
