Hi everyone,
So I have recently come to get my hands on an old Apple box. The UPS ship date is August 3, 1982. I am trying to find out what product went in it. Can anyone help me out? I have attached some photos to help. The box dimensions are 22 3/8" x 10 5/8z" x 8 3/4". It's too small and long to be a Apple II so I think it may be from a printer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. IMG_0806.JPG IMG_0808.JPG IMG_0809.JPG IMG_0811.JPG

It looks like it's just a box of peripherals. I know the Apple II would come in a similar bigger box (with the same "The Personal Computer" on the side), so probably relates something to the II.

Possibly Apple's "Profile" 5 Meg (yes, meg) external hard drive. They were about the size of a bread box but not quite as tall. Shipping date too early for a Lisa. Another possibility could be an Apple III.

Those were the days. I bought an Apple IIe around that time and remember that slogan on the box. Wish I still had that ole boy.

I worked for an Apple retailer in 1982 .... so long ago
That (if if remember) was the box the the floppy disk drives came in.... although a similar size/shape box was used for all smaller items as well
