A man found the computer he used 35 years ago...It still worked and there was a little surprise in it.

John Puff is a law professor at Fordham University in New York. In his parents' home, he discovered an old and dusty Apple IIe computer that he used more than 35 years ago. Apple IIe (the letter 'e' refers to 'enhanced'), the third model in the Apple II series was introduced in January 1983 and was initially sold for $ 1395.


IIe had built-in 64-bit RAM and introduced the ability to use both uppercase and lowercase letters, allowing full functionality of the Shift and Caps Lock keys.


The computer also included new keyboard features - directional cursors, Tab and Delete keys. The computer used the original floppy disks with a storage capacity of about 80 kilobytes. Apple IIe served its purpose well and became common in many schools and homes, before all models of this computer were discontinued in November 1993.

Imagine how surprised you are to look at things from childhood and discover that the old computer is still functioning, and in addition, it offers you the ability to continue the game that you have preserved over three decades ago. Yes, that's exactly what happened to John. After turning on the computer, he was offered to continue the old game.


John saved his adventure for the game Adventureland, published in 1978, which was played using two simple command words. Fortunately, John was still able to play. Neuromancer (a game based on William Gibson's 1989 book), along with the Millionaire and the Olympic Decathlon (published by Microsoft in 1980) were also preserved and John enjoyed while playing them. The games were available on floppy disks.


With a smile on his face, he examined the entire computer and decided to show his children what the retro games looked like in his time.
