    Mine (a RevB Apple IIe w/65c02) still works. 128kb 80-column card, two quarter-pounder floppies (an Apple and a MicroSci), Orange Grappler (parallel) printer card, HP-540 inkjet printer, and an Apple III 12" green-screen monitor.

    Runs VisiCalc Advanced Version (though the MouseText makes everything under the highlight unreadable), original AppleWorks (w/Beagle Bros enhancements) and...

    BurgerTime :cool: -- one of the best arcade games ever.

    A bunch of other things, too.

    I can't say that I still use this computer, but I know that it works, but my Macintosh SE still works. It takes about 3 seconds to open a window, but by-golly it can open it ! :D:D

    It's the CompactFlash IDE Interface for Apple II that you're thinking of.

    We were cleaning house here at work and found a whole crate full of IIe's and such. We cleaned one up, and it fired right up. Wow, not bad for a computer that's from when I was in 3rd grade (I'm 27 now).
