The Apple III: My mini review and repair

Update: Sorry for audio sync issues, the file I rendered does not have the issue.

I recently found a complete Apple III computer on Craigslist. While most are familiar with what the Apple II and Macintosh is, the Apple III is much more unknown.

Here I will tell you what this computer is about, what made it unique, and how I got mine working.
