Apple II clones

This page is dedicated to all the unclassifiable Apple II compatible computers. There were numerous models, mainly produced in the Far East, but also in Europe, the USA and South America.

Some of them bore exotic names like Lemon, Orange, Peach or Pineapple, while other were simply no-name systems. In most cases the mainboard and the case were pretty similar to that of the original Apple II. However, the manufacturers often attempted to offer an additional technical feature to distinguish them from the competition, be it a better sound generator, a built-in floppy drive controller or a second Z80 processor. Clone makers also produced copies of the best-selling Apple cards: FDD controller, serial, I/O and Parallel, CPM card, etc..

The model shown has probably lost its label but was called the Lazar II. It was made in Taiwan and mainly sold in Germany. It was a typical Apple II+ clone with the same case, the same power supply unit, a slightly improved main board (see 'More pictures') and a larger loudspeaker. Like all the Apple clones, it used a copy of the AppleSoft ROMs in which an 'Hello' replaced the 'Apple ][' greeting.


This page is open for your Apple II clones. If you have such an obscure model, let us know, we will be glad to add it.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


I "think" I just bought one of these clones, but still trying to understand exactly what it is. It looks similar to the Lazar II clone, but the power supply and motherboard are original Apple ones, so I guess somebody changed the case.

That should read "Apricot" :-)

I had an "Aprocot" back in the mid 80s. The motherboard was in a box with a separate keyboard.
