Apple //c - 01
The Apple IIc is the compact (the "c" means compact) version of the
Apple IIe.
It has the same characteristics but lot of features which are optional
on the IIe are provided on the IIc (floppy disk drive, 80 columns
display, color display, 128 KB RAM), but unlike the Apple 2e, it has no
expansion slots, so it is hard to add features to this computer.
It runs either with DOS 3.3 either with ProDos and has the first version
of QuickDraw in ROM.

The Apple IIc was originally designed to be a portable version of the
Apple II, but it wasn't a stand alone system, it has no batteries and no
LCD screen (Apple would soon release the items), it coud also be used
with a small 9" monochrome green screen which plugged into the unit.
The Apple IIc was mainly used as a desktop computer.

The Apple IIc was replaced with the Apple IIc+ in 1988.


Introduced in April of 1984, the Apple IIc was the first compact Apple II.
It came in a small white case, and was built around an enhanced 65C02
processor, running at 1.4 MHz.
It had 128k RAM, (expandable to 1 MB) a built-in 5.25" floppy drive on
the side, and could be used with a mouse.
The Apple IIc+ was introduced in 1988, with a 4 MHz 65C02,
RAM expandable to over 1 MB, a larger ROM, and an optional
internal 800k 3.5" drive.
The Apple IIc+ was discontinued in November of 1990.
