|APPLE BURGERTIME 1982.
Facts from apple-history.com The Apple II was announced in June 1977. was based on Wozniak's Apple I design, but with several additions. The first was the design of a plastic case--a rarity at the time--which was painted beige. The second was the ability to display color graphics--a holy grail in the industry. The Apple II also included a larger ROM, more expandable RAM (4K to start), and 8 expansion slots. It had integer BASIC hard-coded on the ROM for easier programming, and included two game paddles and a demo cassette for $1,298. In early 1978 Apple also released a disk drive for the machine, one of the most inexpensive available.
It contained a MOS 8-bit 6502 processor which could run at speeds up to 1 MHz. It contained 64K of RAM and a 12K ROM and had an optional floppy drive. The Display was 6 color at 280x192, 4-bit color at 40x48 and it had a built in speaker. Burgertime ran on it and later on the Apple III. The Apple II was replaced by the Apple III, which sold very poorly and was replaced by the Apple IIIplus ($2995) in Late 1983. The Apple IIIplus was discontinued in 1985.
