Guy Finds 30 Year Old Apple IIe in Parents’ Attic Still Working


John Pfaff posted a on Twitter pictures and video that you might not believe after hearing the story.  An Apple IIe computer from the 1980’s was found in his parents’ attic and he plugged it in to find out it works perfectly.

Pfaff stated “Oh. My. God. An Apple IIe. Sat in my parents’ attic for years. Decades. And it works. Put in an old game disk. Asks if I want to restore a saved game. And finds one! It must be 30 years old. I’m 10 years old again.”

Take a look at some of the games below that seemed to boot right up perfectly.

We have to say that this is very impressive considering the machine most likely experienced dust, moisture, bugs, or other attic like conditions.  We hope John keeps this one up and running for the kids of today to see.
