APPLE IIe Platinum

This was the last version of the Apple II series that was first released in April 1977 and finally discontinued in mid 1993, making it the only home computer in production for more than 15 years.

The major difference from the previous Apple IIe versions is that the keyboard had been redesigned to be functionally equivalent to the keyboard of the Apple IIGS. The new keyboard incorporated an 18-key numeric keypad including two programmable function keys and cursor control keys.

The Platinum also had a new light-grey coloured case, a new motherboard design with a reduced chip count, and included a revised owner's manual, a guide to AppleSoft BASIC and two double-sided training disks.

Finally, the IIe was shipped with the Apple 64 KB / 80-column upgrade card already installed.

Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).

Apple II Q&A

How to remove Cards

Remember the Slot!!
Grasp the sides of the card with your hand and pull, be careful! NEVER WIGGLE THE CARD FROM SIDE TO SIDE!!! Rock it BACK AND FORTH. Carfully. Do NOT FORCE IT! You should never tocu the golden 'teeth' on the bottom of the card; this can distort data that is transferd through them or ruin the card forever. When you put the card back in, do the same manuver as befor, but push (not too hard). The components (all that stuff) face away from the power supply. Sometimes there is a label that show you where it should face.

Want to see if you Apple IIe Platinum is in tip top shape? Simply press Control-Option- Reset
Patterns will appear on the screen and will stay for a few moments as the machine searches for any problems it has. If you hear a sound and see the messege

System OK

Then great!

If not, the problem may be one of the cards inside. Open the Apple IIE and CAREFULLY remove ONE card at a time and run the test. Repet the process with each card, one at a time. This is a great way to look for problems with your Apple IIe Platinum. Good Luck!
