A rather complete Apple IIgs System

Apple IIgsApple 2gsFollowing the success of everyones retro-favourite 8-bit Apple II, Apple went on and released the impressive 16-bit Apple IIGS. This fantastic little machine sported a full GUI, ample RAM, rich audio-visual capabilities, Apple II compatibility, true multitasking, quite a few expansion options and a sleek design. Shockingly it didn't fare too well versus the behemoths that were the Amiga and Atari ST. Must have been the price methinks. Anyway.

You can find out (much) more about the thing over at Wikipedia and Oh, and do yourselves a favour and try a few classic Apple 2 and 2gs games for free and in the comfort of your browser here.

For a more material approach try this Apple IIGS Computer System & extras eBay auction instead. The seller is willing to ship worldwide, the price seems more than decent and you'll be getting a mint condition Apple IIgs with mouse, monitor, printer, manuals, software, keyboard and, well, extras.


  1. Apple IIGS, this fantastic little machine has many uses of full GUI, ample RAM and rich audio-visual capabilities.
