PC World just did a cool little photo tribute to the Apple //c.

I thought it was interesting to learn that the //c cost about $2638 in 2008 dollars when it came out in 1984. I don't personally have a //c, opting instead for a //c+, but these are really cool computers, and probably the best one to have now if you are only a casual Apple II fan who wants to relive the old days every now and then by playing a favorite old game or writing a little BASIC program.

and it's possible to make the IIc even more portable. Check out the pics of the Playstation LCD hooked up to my IIc.

The original IIc (not the IIc+,) could be run off a battery pack (only third parties ever made them,) and there was the official Apple IIc LCD screen.

The movie 2010 (released in 1984,) featured an Apple IIc with LCD screen as a 'laptop' computer.
