Hardware Description

Beginning in September 1986, Apple adopted a unified cross-platform product strategy essentially eliminating platform specific peripherals where possible. The Apple 3.5" Drive (A9M0106), released in unison with the Apple IIGS computer, replaced the beige-colored Macintosh 800K External Drive with a new 800K external drive that works on both the Apple IIGS as well as the Macintosh.
