Franken-Apple IIe

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Tue Dec 19, 2017 4:55 pm

I got a FRUIT!! OH NO!

Image
In true Thinkpad style, I replaced the display with a UXGA IPS display! (and yes, the CRT works too.)

Now stop complaining and get back to work with your "wrongly configured" box of pixels.

-Thinkpad4by3, or 3:2, or 16:10, or 16:9, or 21:9.....or whatever.

I can tell this is 1:1 pixel mode done badly. Should had upconverted to full size of LCD.

Cheers, thinkpadcollection

No its not. The CRT displays a significant border too on the top and bottom and the image is slightly squished. The Apple IIe displays alot of overscan which is playing games with the Dell's controllerboard.

I saved one of these from the trash at a school a couple months ago. Sold it off to someone who'd appreciate it more than I ever could. Amazing how simple these things are, from a hardware architecture standpoint.

Years ago when I was at college, one night someone told me to look at computer stuff that is left out in hallway (means free for taking), and spied complete apple IIe, yes really! Since knew a friend who dearly missed his so I snatched it up and easy fix inside PSU with one capacitor. Now a really appreciated friend with his fun computer.
