Apple II+ Launched
Essentially an updated version of the Apple II, the II+ came with 48K RAM, and a new auto-start ROM for easier start-up and screen editing. It also included a new flavor of Basic in the ROM - a floating point version written by a new company called Microsoft. It was released in June 1979 and retailed for $1,195. The II+ was sold in Europe as the II Europlus, which could display video in European PAL format, and had ESC sequences for European letters. It was also repackaged in a black case and sold to educational markets by Bell & Howell. The II+ was replaced by the Apple IIe in 1983.
