Dinosaur Sightings: Computers from 1984-1989

Apple IIGS

Released on Apple‘s 10th anniversary, the first 10,000 Apple IIGS computers (GS = graphics sound) have the signature of "Woz" on the front. Woz is Steve Wozniak, who single-handedly designed the first Apple computers, the Apple I and the Apple II.

The IIGS is a continuation of the earlier Apple II computer line, and is designed to be backwards compatible with Apple II software and hardware. The IIGS CPU even has built-in MOS 6502 emulation, which is the CPU in the Apple II line of computers.

Why won't these sites work on a PC anymore? I tried IE and Chrome and neither will allow me to browse the slideshow. What do I have to do? Buy a Mac? That won't happen! I know what to do, unsubscribe from Tech Republic!
