Unboxing brand new Apple IIc sealed factory box!

Written By: Scott - Jan• 01•11

Just a little fun on this rainy first day of 2011-  Happy New Year!

Sorry to disappoint, but I don’t intend to break the factory seal on the IIc box. It is much more collectible as probably the only brand new 1985 Apple IIc in its sealed factory box in existence. Honestly, I bought this particular IIc because it was in its sealed box, and it was priced accordingly too. The dealer in Chicago I bought it from got it from a business in St. Louis that had originally planned to put it in their office, but changed and went with a different system, so it sat along with the monitor and stand- all unopened in their closet or warehouse for 25 years!

  1. I had an Apple 2GS they had PRAM batteries, I wonder if the IIc had one also? Hope there isn’t a leaking battery in that factory sealed case. I also have a Powerbook 100, that I should check the batteries on….

    Sorry Scott.. Not the only unopened one. Today my guys found one in a warehouse that was marked for Demo. I am their IT guy so they thought I might like to play with it. Imagine my surprise when I learned that it still had the factory seal, and the monitor stand and monitor still had the original unbroken (now yellow) packing tape!

    That’s great! I hope you don’t break the boxes’ seals, but if you do, I’d love to get you to video opening the IIC. Plus I’m curious about how the battery is after all this time.
