Franklin Ace 1000

Back when Apple still believed in open architecture and still licensed other companies to make Apple compatible products, a company called Franklin offered a line of Apple ][ Plus compatible machines.

The Franklin in my collection is an Ace 1000. I also have a Franklin 1200 and a Franklin 1200 case top which includes two floppy drives for this machine. I do not have any original Franklin software, but this computer runs all of the Apple ][ software I have.

The Franklin Ace 1000 Manual

I recently acquired a Franklin Ace 1000 users manual to accompany this system.

I would like to thank Steven Stengel for his kind and generous donation of this Franklin system.
