Well I have been looking for a Bell and Howell for my collection for a while now, but I couldn't bring myself to spend 400-900 dollars on fleabay to get one. Well I lucked out and somebody gave me one and it works. I posted pictures below. I haven't done too much research on it, but I think it is an older Apple II model because it has the raised power light. It doesn't have the backpack unit or disk ii drives. He had two Franklin drives attached to it with a Franklin disk controller in the machine.
The RAM Card in it was a Legend Industries 64KC card that allowed you to use 16K for the Apple II and then the other 48K could be used as a RAM drive. The manual is available online. Interesting piece.
The other card is a Centronics Printer Interface with the word Centronics scratched out. Not sure why.
Also it looks like the power supply is a replacement as it has the address of a local computer show back in the day. D&A Electronics. I think I actually remember them as being a huge Apple II shop, but when the Apple II died, so did they.
Now to try to find a pair of Disk II drives for a reasonable price and then I will have a set.
I cleaned this one up and ran diagnostics and it works. The power supply switch is backwards, you click it down to turn it on. This also makes me think it is a replacement.
Just wanted to share and any and all comments welcome. I am going to do a little research and familiarize myself with these now that I own one.
