Apple II +

My fist computer in 1983 was an Apple II +. It had 64 k of memory (upgrade-able to 128 K, I think.) When I purchased it, it only had a "40 column Video Card in it. You could only display 40 columns of text at a time. My big technology splurge in discretionary spending that year was to buy myself an 80 column card so I could see a "Full screen" of text on a page. What a break through that was. My next big purchase for that machine was a very high speed 300 baud modem.
