NaBloPoMo – Black Apple (“Darth Apple”)

Well a break from the DEC computers (don't worry they will be back).

Here is an Apple II+ computer but its not a normal Apple II+.  Notice anything?  Yep its black.  Bell and Howell sold them under license (Apple still made them) to schools.   So its sorta unusual.  The Apple II+ was a followup to the Apple II.  It was basically almost the same but with 48KB of RAM and a few other things.  I obtained this sample from another coworker.  This was his second computer.  It still works but could use the keyboard repaired as some of the keys stick.  Not bad considering the Apple II+ was sold from 1979 to 1982.

I am lazy tonight so I will let the picks speak for themselves.

Note:  Edited to include "Darth Apple" nickname.  Thanks Lurkertype.

    You have made a mistake here. The proper name of these computers was "Darth Apples".

    I did not know that. Nifty. I wonder if I can program it to play the Imperial March. Around here we had just called them them Black Apples. But then Kentucky is sorta of behind the times.
