Apple //c available...

Today a lady called the store, asking if she could drop off an "older
Macintosh computer," and when she showed up, what she had was an Apple //c
w/PS, 9" (I'm guessing green phosphor) monochrome monitor, a Panasonic
KXP1091 printer, and a Hotlink //c Printer Interface.
It seems to have all (appropriate) cables available, but no software. It
looks to be in very good shape - the case is not very yellowed at all for
it's age, and no glaring scratches or anything. Very clean system.
I can test the computer and monitor at least, as long as test == "Wow - it
lights up!" -- if it's got a ROM-based DOS, I could see if it can format a
floppy (I do have some DSDD 5.25" disks handy) if someone let's me know the
commands... if it needs a system disk, tho, I don't have one, and the best
I could do is "Wow - it lights up!" ;-)
I don't have a problem parting out the system if someone needs something in
I can provide pictures if y'all are willing to wait to tomorrow (if it
matters) I'm guesssssing it's a bog-standard //c, tho. I can also provide
serial numbers, if that's a big deal.
Buyer to pay for shipping and any packing materials that I have to buy to
make it go away - I already own packing peanuts & bubblewrap, but if I
gotta buy a box or two, *you* gotta buy a box or two... ;-)
Priorities will go to:
1) whoever wants the monitor with the system - I can't throw them away
anymore, and I don't want a 9" Apple monitor kicking around with no machine
to hook it two, and...
2) whoever best describes (IMHO) why you *deserve* such a fine piece of
computing history. ;-)
