Hello,

I just got this depopulated mainboard in a lot I picked up. It has no names or numbers on it. The spacing and stuff looks like an Apple II style board to me. Any ideas?

That's a clone board. I have one exactly like it.

Thanks guys. Sounds like a good candidate for some wall art.

Re: Main board Identification

I actually populated one of those boards.
Worked OK as an Apple ][ but they made changes in the video section.
As a result, it does not look (color-wise) the same as an Apple ][.
But it does run all the software, no issue on that.

I was having a rotten day today, but for some reason, that line "That's a clone board. I have one exactly like it." made me burst out laughing...

Thanks, macnoyd!

Well!? I do! Smile

Not sure why that's so funny, but glad I made you laugh. We need more of that.

Re: Main board Identification

If I have "one exactly like" anything, then whatever that is, it's a clone. That's what struck me as funny...your use of the term "clone" in the first sentence was completely accurate, but after you read the second sentence, it's STILL accurate but for a completely different reason.

Anyway, I thought it was hilarious, and I needed that. So thanks again!
