Apple Disk IIc

The Apple Disk IIc is an external 5.25″ floppy disk drive that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 1984 to 1990. Disk IIc has been introduced on April 24, 1984, and its price started at $329.

The Disk IIc was designed specifically for use with the Apple IIc computer. The disk port on the original IIc was only designed to control one additional, external ​5.25-inch disk drive, and as such, this particular drive omitted a daisy-chain port in the back.

It was possible to use it on other Apple II models, so long as it came last in the chain of drive devices (due to lacking a daisy-chain port); but since the Disk IIc was sold without a controller card, the Apple IIc computer needing none, it had to be adapted to an existing Disk II controller card in this case.

This disk drive has been discontinued on September 1, 1990.

Today Apple Disk IIc is 38 years old!
