Development verification model of the Apple IIc Plus personal computer (Model No. A2S4500), with a label on the top reading: "Pvt Unit (UMC), Not For Sale." The unit's case has a production-style bottom with cast model number and specifications, serial number label (E821058PVT4500), and the typical caseback with inherent port symbols. However, it is missing the "Apple IIc Plus" text from the upper right corner of the case. Includes an original Apple-supplied shipping box (with non-matching serial number), with label addressed to Roger Wagner in El Cajon, California. In fine cosmetic condition; operational condition untested.
The Apple IIc, released in April 1984, was Apple Computer’s first endeavor to produce a portable computer—it was essentially a complete Apple II squeezed into a smaller housing, and the 'c' stood for 'compact.' The Apple IIc Plus was introduced on September 16, 1988, at the AppleFest conference in San Francisco, with a faster processor, smaller footprint, and a high-capacity 3½ disk drive. Prior to the release of the Apple IIc Plus, developers were sent pre-production machines with which to develop and test software.
From the personal computer-history collection of Roger Wagner.
