I have seen a lot of Apple II Bell and Howell's lately. I really like the early Apple ii Bell and Howell's with the raised power light. Unfortunately, I don't have enough information to tell if one is complete or not. Most that I have seen look like the parts have all been updated. I have heard that the early Apple II Bell and Howell's had revision 3 motherboards. Does anyone own one? If so, what serial number is it? Can someone please post a photo.

My B+H Apple II Plus is in the 1600's and is a Rev 4. I don't know have any information about earlier models and what they came with.

Snuci, what is the date code on your motherboard?

The date code is 7935. It also has a fairly early keyboard without separate keyboard encoder board as would match the era. I have a fairly close Apple II Plus with similarly construction.

I have a B&H Apple II with serial number in the 1400s. It has a raised power light, 605-7301 PSU with seriall# around 1800, and rev3 motherboard dated 7921. I believe the MB to be original to the system, not sure about the PSU (I would have thought it should still be A2M001 model).

Hope this info helps!

Hmm. I have B&H A2S3-000431, and it has a rev 4 7935 motherboard in it. I guess maybe it might have been replaced very early on, or maybe this was just at a time when both revisions were floating around. My rev 3 Apple II has a 7917 motherboard date.
