Here’s another cool mod from moder extraordinaire Ben Heck, this time it’s an Apple IIgs Laptop.
Ben wanted the laptop mod to look like a laptop which had been designed in the 80’s like the Apple IIgs, looks like he has done a pretty good job of it.
Here’s some of the specs.
- Large 15? color screen. Much bigger than the ones on my other 8-bit computer projects (thus far)
- Uses an original Apple IIgs motherboard with RAM expansion.
- Custom acrylic keyboard. It uses the original keyboard PCB, but the buttons were custom made for a cool modern look.
- CompactFlash adapter inside unit functions as an original equipment hard drive.
- Glowing backlit ][ logo. Blue for on, with a bit of yellow during disk access.
- Built-in stereo speakers.
- Side port access for floppy drive, joystick and mouse.
- Can play Arkanoid II!
