  Apple IIc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Apple IIc, the fourth model in the Apple II series of personal computers, was Apple Computer's first endeavor to produce a portable computer.
The new machine was proclaimed as proof of Apple's long term commitment to the Apple II series and its users, an assurance the company's older technology would not be forsaken or dropped with the recent introduction of the Macintosh.
One Apple II machine would be sold for users who required the expandability of slots, and another for those wanting the simplicity of a plug and play machine with portability in mind.

 Apple IIc revealed.
Apple has built a computer that is to be used as an applicance--like a telephone or a tape recorder.
The layout of the Apple IIc keyboard is identical to that of the IIe, with the exception of the RESET key.
It makes the IIc a "closed system." This is the kind of environment for which software developers like to program, since they don't have to worry about all the different cards and hardware kits that you may or may not have in your computer.

 Apple II History Chap 8
Apple's introduction of the new IIc came at an "event" at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco on April 24th, 1984.
Apple's objectives here were to introduce The Apple IIc, describe how it fit into the company's marketing strategy, show off new software that was made to work with the new computer, and emphasize that Apple was still firmly behind the Apple II line of computers.
Apple even included code in the new ROM to patch DOS 3.3 so it could be used as a RAMdisk with that system (400K maximum size), and did the same with Pascal v1.3.

The way the Apple IIc stores data on those disks is absolutely incompatible with the way the PC floppy disk drives does it.
The Apple IIc use a 5 pin DIN connector (identical to the MIDI or AT keyboard connectors).
You start the Apple version on the Apple, and the PC version on the PC, insert a blank floppy, and on the appleIIc, you type the file you want to transfer (filename of the file on the pc side), and then wait a few seconds and it's done.

The IIc+ is capable of 40-column and 80-column text, color graphics, and a split-screen mode (most useful for text/graphic adventures!) with four lines of text at the bottom of the screen and a graphic area above.
Apple didn't have a lot of time to devote to this project (and they probably didn't want to throw a lot of engineering effort into it), so they licensed an off-the-shelf 4MHz accelerator card, integrated it into the IIc's architecture, and called it the IIc+.
Unfortunately, the Apple II emulation and nostalgia scene is held back significantly by a number of troublemaking busybodies with loud voices, an inability to mind their own business, and nothing productive to occupy their time.

In April 1984, Apple unveils the Apple IIc with an intense publicity extravaganza, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
The Apple IIc (the "c" means compact) is pretty much a portable Apple IIe computer, with its most obvious feature being its small size.
In 1988, four years after the Apple IIc was introduced, Apple introduced the Apple IIc Plus, a faster system with an internal 3-1/2 inch drive instead of the 5-1/4 inch.

The Apple //c+ was discontinued in November of 1990.
Apple licensed the add-on technology from Zip Technologies to incorporate the accelerator as standard in the IIc+, though in doing so, broke it out into an ASIC, SRAM and a faster 65C02 (the ZipChip had all that intergrated into a tall 40-pin DIP chip).
The Apple //c was offered by Apple not only with the two displays listed (9" monochrome and LCD), but also was avilable a special RGB 13" monitor in snow white and with a stand to make it fit the //c.

 Apple II series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Apple II sparked the beginning of the personal computer revolution, as it was targeted for the masses rather than just hobbyists and engineers; its introduction and subsequent popularity also greatly influenced most of the microcomputers that followed it.
The Apple IIc was the first Apple II to use the updated 65C02 processor, and featured a built-in floppy drive and 128 KB RAM, with a built-in disk controller that could control external drives, composite video (NTSC or PAL), serial interfaces for modem and printer, and a joystick/mouse port.
Apple decided not to create an open architecture with the initial Macintosh models, and this is widely seen as having hobbled its success; however, the IBM PC provides an object lesson that success for the platform does not necessarily equate to success for the company that invented it.

Though portable, with a handle on its back that also folds down to tilt the keyboard into a comfortable typing position, the Apple IIc does not have an integrated display and can be considered a direct descendent of the previous Apple II design.
The Apple logo on the left is balanced with the model name on the right at the back from these lines, while the front setback in behind the keyboard similarly balances three buttons on the left with two LCD lights on the right.
This popularity was driven in large part by its appearance; the IIc was the first Apple product to receive formal recognition for its industrial design, for which it won several prestigious awards (Kunkel, 40).

Apple IIgs or GS or best (if you have the fonts) GS The Apple //c is the compact (the "c" means compact) version of the Apple IIe.
The Apple //c was mainly used as a desktop computer and was replaced with the Apple IIc+ in 1988.
The Apple IIc+ was the finest Apple 8-bit computer ever built, but lack of marketing, the apparent de-evolution in technology compared to the 16-bit Apple GS, and the aggressive sale of the Laser 128EX/2 made the IIc+ the most short lived of the Apple II models.

The IIc (released April 24th, 1984) and IIc+ (released September 1988) are 'luggable' versions of an Enhanced IIe, with many built-in 'cards'.
The IIc+ has a built-in accelerator that runs at either 1 or 4Mhz (switch built into case), an internal power supply vs the 'brick on a rope' design of the IIc, and a built in 800K 3.5" drive vs the 140K 5.25" drive of the IIc.
The IIc had a number of internal revisions; the best way to check is to go into Basic and type "PRINT PEEK (64447)" and press return (no quotes).

However, the Apple III was late and suffered from poor backwards compatibility and a nearly 100% hardware failure rate.
The IIc was very similar to the IIe, but came in a compact case that included the most popular peripherals, such as a disk drive and serial card, built in.
However, the public did not embrace the Apple IIc, partly because it was not expandable like the IIe and partly because people incorrectly equated the small size with a lack of power.

The Apple II along with the Radio Shack TRS-80 were the impetus behind IBM's introduction of the IBM PC.
The fact the Apple II was attractively designed and incorporated several new technologies not found in other personal computers, established the Apple II as a serious business machine.
The big advantage to Apple was that it was much less expensive to produce than the II and the combination of improvements plus cost made the IIE the cash cow Apple needed to fund its Macintosh development.
