Thread: Dark Green Slot Rev 0s

  1. Default

    Apple II rev 0 boards were not buggy. There were some improvements, enhancements and cost reductions made along the way, but for all intents and purposes an Apple II rev 0 PCB would reliably run virtually all the software that would run on a rev 7 PCB.

    There were a couple of issues, such as the first character being dropped after power up, but none of them would be considered show-stoppers. If you were bothered by the missing features, such as the extra hi-res colors, the changes were small enough that you could always add them to the board.

    regards,

The Rev 0 is technically a lousy and problematic version of the board, hence the multiple reversions of said board. I would think that the case and bottom alone is what is valued, and anything inside is irregardless because, as [falter] pointed out, at the time you actually used the equipment during the late 1970s/early 1980s, you just wanted a working computer, and everyone took advantage of the revisions of the guts of the computer.

    So my Rev 0 finally arrived.. I'm going to get to powering it up soon but I'm curious... to me the case plastic feels a little bit.. I don't know... not as dense as the one on my Rev 02. Is that my imagination? Or did they dial in the case making process/material a bit somewhere between the Rev 0 and down the line?
