Our model is the limited 'Woz' edition. The first 50,000 machines produced had Steve Wozniak's signature silk screened on to the front panel. Although not functionally any different from any later II GS machines, these are now sought after for their limited availability.
The IIGS was released September 15, 1986. It was intended to compete with personal computers such as the Commodore Amiga and Atari ST at the time of its release and was somewhat popular with schools, but Apple failed to promote and update the IIGS, preferring to focus on the Macintosh instead. The IIGS lacked compelling features over its competitors and increasingly fell behind other personal computers over its lifetime, and Apple ceased production of it in December
