Ventless Rev 0 Apple II

Woz designed the Apple II, but Steve Jobs clearly had a hand in designing the case. His obsession with design and hatred of fans dates back to the very beginning. No computer in the Apple II line had a fan. The very first didn't even have vents.

Due to issues with overheating, this design was soon modifed to have vents. Early buyers had the option of upgrading to the vented case, and many did. Others, such as the owner of the computer pictured below, added fans.

These are some of the best photos I've ever seen of a ventless, Revision 0 Apple II. Thank you to hamandhifi for giving me permission to share them. This computer sold on 5/30/19 for $11,236.90. 

There is a discussion of the computer here: Apple II rev.0 serial A2S1-0203 up for auction

Github Apple II Repositories

Eventhough this has been around for sometime,
I thought I would start a topic on the above as there
seems to be alot on offer on this site. There is
aload of stuff to be found for the Apple II and emulators.

There is source code, disk tools, emulators written in
various languages and system disks.

It won't all be for the Apple but you can look at other code as well.

Here is what I have found so far. It is not meant to be a complete
list so if you know of any others please add.

Enjoy!

Apple Confidential 2.0

The subtitle of Apple Confidential 2.0 does a really nice job of saying what the whole book is about. "The Definitive History of the World's Most Colorful Company". I would agree that this is an up to date and thorough history of Apple Computers. This contains chapters on subjects as diverse as "Why 1985 wasn't like 1984" to "Woz's Wanderings". Since it would be almost impossible to summarize what's contained in this book, I've concentrated more on readability in this review.
