Apple ///


General Information

The elusive Apple /// - touted to be Apple's business machine for a 10 year period - only lasted 2!


This ill fated business machine was doomed from the start - bound by the instructions of Steve Jobs, the case was designed before the electronics!

Not only this, but the engineers were forbidden to install fans - as they were not elegant.

The ///'s first run was full of problems - chips launching out of sockets - 20% D.O.A. Apple asked customers to raise the machines two inches off the table and drop them; hoping to reseat the chips.

After a maintenance release, and then the ///+, the /// series was axed.
