DIPA – Apple II+ clone:

This is one Apple II clone i got several years ago from Germany. It looks like it’s a II+ clone from the looks of it. It’s not per say pretty by it’s design but so often the clones had… well, “interesting design choices”.

From the back.

There’s no name badge or serial number on the case anywhere but it reads “DIPA” in motherboard.

Most chips seems to be mostly from 1983 on the motherboard expect some RAM that have 1978 (!) dates.

One IC is missing from the motherboard, 74LS259.

The green slots look always cool!

The powersupply’s cable wont fit to the connector on motherboard. So is the powersupply or the motherboard been swapped? So i haven’t been able to test this if it works or not and i have not put any extra effort on it trying to figure that out either..

I’ve found out that there are these models made but nothing more specific like specs. I assume here that they are Apple II+ (48k) and possibly //e (64k) clones.

German computer magazine “Computer Persönlich” had (in early 1983) some information about these models but i have not find any of these magazines scanned nor pictures etc.
