Apple IIe computer


Apple II computers were among the first microcomputers to be produced. They were designed primarily by Steve Wozniak and launched in 1977. 

Computers reproduce text using light, which can then be made physical through printers, such as the dot matrix one on display. These devices have revolutionised how we produce texts and communicate through writing over great distances.

This computer runs Apple DOS 3.3 and contains 64 KB RAM.
