Apple has been around a while

Went to my parent’s house this past weekend.  I was rummaging through some of the junk I’ve accumulated over the years, some of which I’ve had for close to 25 years, and housed it all in as many boxes as I could lay my hands on as I grew older.

I happened to come across this box:

Yes, I admit it—I owned an Apple IIe.  The system itself is long gone, and the box is currently being used to store many many books.  And this was just the box just for the monitor.

As you can tell my by the print, the monitor was monochromatic–a black background with bright green text.  That’s it.  Almost 30 years later, it’s easy to mock and scorn this collection of hardware, but to me I will always recall using the Apple IIe as a great experience.

P.S.  I owned a Commodore VIC-20 before the Apple.
