Tell me that's a joke from National Lampoon and not a real ad.

Everytime I look, I find something new. I'm telling you everything is there.

And if you can't find something... they must be in the bathroom.

Who's the mustached dog man in the foreground?

Otherwise, I could pick out everything else. I've watched a LOT of fi sci.

If you aren't handling graphics, you can do a tremendous amount with 32k. I can only assume that was a misprint, as 128k would make more logical sense - unless they had some 8k ROM really badly mapped somewhere.

I don't think that's real. I googled it, couldn't find anything.

But I kinda want one.

It looks awfully similar to this real product, though:

Yes, that is, in fact, an Apple IIc with an LCD display.

Image

It was not terribly convenient or portable, though...

Yeah, it looks like somebody tried to build a IIc portable in Photoshop out of an LCII, an external floppy drive, and [I don't know where the eff they got that screen.)

They keyboard layout matches the qwerty section of an Apple Pro Keyboard, or the earlier AppleDesign Extended, but with the ctrl keys removed. I think some of those came in black for the TAM and a couple other Performa models that were available in black.

I had one of these: Image

It was a Compaq LTE 386 with a reasonably speedy 386 SX processor (no math coprocessor...) It ran for ages until I attempted to switch out the hard disk and ripped the flat flex cable. :( Note, while it ran Windows for Workgroups 3.11 when I got it, I ended up running NetBSD on it.

I also managed to score its successor, the LTE 486, with a faster 75MHz 486 that also ran NetBSD, and which I had until a few years ago when I gave it away.

Neat!

It plays later at night on the local NPR/MPR station. I used to listen to it a lot more (crappy two-job schedule) but now I just get dribs and drabs. Carol Whatsername is a good interviewer.

The theme song is friggin catchy.
