Two interesting items today:

1. An Original Apple II with a lot of extras. Ebay item 250524163988.
Current price is $300.00 with four days left.

2. An Apple IIgs "Woz Limited Edition". This IIgs is "ROM 03" (this is kind of hard to beleive). I always thought the limiteds were ROM 01.
Asking Price $666.66. No; computer is not brand new.
Ebay item 150387133575

So far the Original II seems to be the best buy I've seen in a while. There is another one listed,but has a starting price of $525.00. No bids yet.

Good morning to all. Smile

For the WOZ edition IIgs ROM

For the WOZ edition IIgs ROM 03, they could have put a woz edition top on a ROM 03 machine, or replaced the ROM 01 motherboard in a WOZ edition with a ROM 03.

I know I took a WOZ edition top from one of the two I have and put it on the one ROM 03 I had. Maybe someday I will get it signed for real by the Woz, making it a true Woz edition. I know someone else did that already.

Doubious Stuff.....

Digital,

When I read the description and it said that there was only one owner, it started looking doubious that this was an original Woz machine.
I know for a fact that the Woz machines were ROM 00 as it is stated as such in the Apple II History Website. So for this to be a WOZ ROM 03 they had to replace the top.
The big thing is the fact that they are trying to sell it for the original price. I sent them an e-mail asking if they had checked out the rest of the IIgs systems being sold on eBay before they set thier price and I was told (in a nice way) to pack sand. Smile
