How to buy a personal computer.. Apple's latest gadget.

Remember these bad boys?? The Apple ][  was my first computers circa 1981/82 Junior High School Grade 7 computer literacy.  We learned BASIC which was built into the Apple]['s ROM; played cool games like PONG on it on a B&W screen monitor.  Prices were $1298 USD for the model with 4K of RAM and CPU MOS 6502, 1.oMHz; 6 colors maximum; dual external 143K floppy drives.  
In Grade 8, the school upgraded to the Apple IIe's which came standard with 64kB of RAM, duodisk drives; we learnt Apple ProDOS, played even cooler games like Pac-Man, and Hard Hat Mac on the wickedly cool green screen monitors.
