|New Features Update|
The Apple IIc Owner's Manual introduces you to the Apple® IIc
computer and helps you learn basic computer concepts and skills.
Read that manual first, then come here to read about the
enhancements to your new Apple IIc.
|A new feature|
Your Apple IIc has a new feature. You can now increase your
Apple IIc's performance capabilities by adding up to 1 megabyte of
extra memory to your Apple IIc.
Your new Apple IIc comes with a standard 128K memory
capacity—just like original models. But with the new Apple IIc, you
can add memory by having your authorized Apple dealer install an
Apple IIc Memory Expansion Card. The memory expansion card
lets you add extra random-access memory in increments of 256K,
up to a maximum of 1 megabyte.
Here are a few of the ways you can use the additional memory on the
memory expansion card:
You can run sophisticated application programs that take
advantage of the memory expansion card's extra memory. For
example, a new version of AppleWorksTM (version 2.0)
automatically loads itself onto the memory expansion card and
uses its extra memory for space on the AppleWorks Desktop.
You can copy application programs like Apple WriterTM II or
Apple AccessTM II onto the memory expansion card. This makes
your programs start up and run faster.
You can temporarily store data on your memory expansion
card. This is particularly useful when you have more than one
program that uses the same data, or if you refer to certain data
Your authorized Apple dealer will install the memory expansion
card for you. See you dealer for more details.
|Changes to the Apple IIc|
Increasing the memory capabilities of the Apple IIc required some
technical changes that may affect how some software runs on your
new Apple IIc. Most software for the Apple IIc should be completely
unaffected by the changes. (A few programs may list the Apple IIc
Memory Expansion Card as an option even when you don't have a
card installed. In such cases, just ignore that option.)
When buying new software, ask your dealer if it runs on a new
Apple IIc. If you are using older software, try it on the new
Apple IIc. If it doesn't work, contact your authorized Apple dealer
or the software manufacturer to see whether there is an updated
version of the program. Software manufacturers routinely update
their application programs to take advantage of new features.
Updated versions may already be available for the new Apple IIc.

Manual. If you need more information about the memory
expansion card, read the Apple IIc Memory Expansion Card
