I have an apple llc that I need to get rid of. It was my moms. It still comes on and works from what I can see...not too sure what it's suppose to do because it was purchased before I was even born!! It has a couple of disks, the monitor, computer/keyboard thing, and something else that I'm not sure what it is..I don't know what to do with it. I was told to sell it but not sure how to go bout doing so...if I can't, I guess I will just throw it away..

My Apple IIc that was for sale in Sydney has been sold to a gentleman in the USA. Enjoy her as much as I did. Have fun with all the games.

Spoke to my mother and apparently the Apple IIc actually works fine! She stopped using it because she couldn't get the ink for the printer. All the manuals and software and stand are still intact. If any one from Sydney, Australia would like to pick it up for AUD$10, then email us.

Let me fix that: Ctrl-Open Apple-Reset is a full reset.

(Submitted March 27, 2006 16:00:55 by Jon Pruente)

Ctrl-Shift-Reset is a full reset, ie. it tries to load a program from the internal drive (S6D1). To drop to Applesoft BASIC press Ctrl- Reset. A great tip if your internal drive is flakey, and you have an external drive (S6D2) such as the Disk //c - Model A2M4050 is to type PR#7 from the BASIC prompt. That will get the //c to try to boot from the external drive. This won't work if you go to BASIC from a ProDOS disk, as the special routine for it is a hack in the ROM ApplesoftBASIC.
