    My girlfriend found this in her closet and I'm super pumped to see some old Apple tech, but I cant figure out which model it is. Any help would be appreciated!

    That would appear to be an Apple IIc. Basically a compact IIe.

    Here is some more information on it: Wikipedia Apple IIc

    If you look closely at the OP's pic, you can see the locking mechanism for the 5.25" floppy drive on the side. The IIc Plus had the 3.5" drive, so this one is a plain old IIc. :)

    So it's an Apple IIc? That's awesome! We've been dating for 2 years and she knows my strong feelings toward Apple and never showed me this! Haha

    I cant wait to take it out and see if it boots up!

    A good woman never shows her apples until the time is right (ripe). ;)

    Great little machine. If you have a newer machine with a serial port, you can run Apple Disk Transfer to send disk images to the system, without needing a boot disk. Or you can just enter BASIC programs by hand.

    I'm not 100% sure. That game is the only disk I found.

    Any of the Apple experts know how I can get passed that "Check disk drive" screen?

    The random characters on the bootup screen are a worry. There's something wrong internally if it always looks similar to that. But hitting the key combination Ctrl-Reset will get you to the AppleSoft BASIC prompt.

    If you want to do disk operations, you'll need some disks and a way to do transfers. ADTPro can help with that.

    Very cool. I know there is a website that will let you put in the serial number of the unit and it will give you the specifics on where it was build and when. Nice find!!!!
