In this session I’ll discuss and demonstrate this little-known but thoroughly awesome member of the Apple II family, and will explain how it uses the LC’s resources to create a maxed-out, souped up Apple IIe. I’ll also describe how it can be a networkable bridge between 5.25″ floppies and modern Macs. You’ll want your next Apple II to be a Mac LC!
