Timeline of Apple II Family - Text Timeline

Text Timeline

The Apple Lisa does not support Apple II software, but shares common hardware. The Apple IIe Card requires a Macintosh LC for operation. Both are shaded to indicate their unique status on this timeline. The Apple I and Apple III both run Apple II software natively, classifying them as Apple II family computers except in name for the purposes of this timeline.

Famous quotes containing the word text:

    Literature is not exhaustible, for the sufficient and simple reason that a single book is not. A book is not an isolated entity: it is a narration, an axis of innumerable narrations. One literature differs from another, either before or after it, not so much because of the text as for the manner in which it is read.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)
