Thread: Apple IIgs

  1. #1

    Default Apple IIgs

    Hi all, I am new to the forum. I just purchased an Apple IIgs to play around with. I had one as a kid. It is the ROM1 with a 256kb memory card installed. I wanted to get advice on what other upgrade cards i should get for it. More than likely I will be using it for vintage gaming but would like to setup an interesting computer. I guess just for the heck of it lol.

    I could also use some advice on what operating system i should be using. I see there is the Apple IIgs System 6.0.1 disks available. I don't recall how the operating system was maintained, etc but will figure that out as I go.

    I was also looking at the external CF card read that is available. Would you recommend that or the internal one that is being offered.

    It has been a long time since i played with one of these so please forgive my ignorance lol.

    Hello, welcome to the forum! I'm not sure what you mean by "the internal one that is being offered", but, the CFFA3000 is the community favorite. I have a ReactiveMicro card that while it has less features I'm happy with it.

    For now you can boot an OS with just a floppy disk - I used System 3, it was fine for looking at and running IIGS programs but I don't know if System 6 boots from disk. System 6.0.4 is a nice OS, I have that installed on my CF card.

    That amount of RAM is good enough for many apps and games, I know many RAM cards are out there and depending on what you want to do that'll make the biggest difference. I can't say cause my RAM card is a Sirius IIGS that does not work.
