A find from Freecycle


About a month ago I picked a nice stash from a freecycler wishing to clean out. The summary list: Partial Apple II, II+, IIe and lots of h/w accessories and software. The fuller list is at the end of this entry.

I'm not a big collector (I have a Obtronix Apple Replica and Kim-1 (another 6502 SBC)). Bit I thought I'd piece together a nice representative Apple 2 and sell off the rest. I haven't tested anything yet.

Question 1: Which to keep: II, II+, or IIe? I need to review Apple system hardware history, but I'd figure the IIe has the most capability, but the II is more significant.

Question 2: Which accessories are significant to keep (you know, but hate to say it: "VERY R@RE!!!")? The more complete list is below. Some things may be rare, but I doubt I'd use. For example, the Switch-A-Slot (see http://tinyurl.com/2m8b3e )

Thanks for any helpful suggestions!
