I finally went today and ended up making a deal for the IIgs I had offered to me a while back. The gentleman I bought it from is a retired school teacher and he had bought this unit brand new, so I am the second owner of it. It's a very bare bones Woz edition that appears to have never had any expansions plugged into the slots ever. He bought this, the RGB monitor, and the single 5.25 inch drive back in the day for over $2000! I just brought it home for $50.. Sadly, it is missing the keyboard, mouse, and power cord and now I know why. His wife has been getting mad at him for keeping this old stuff and has been going through what he called 'cleaning fits'. She was sending him on errands on garbage day, then quickly grabbing whatever she could easily jam into the trash can and pitching it. Sadly, his folder full of software, including a nearly full collection of MECC titles, also got thrown out only a few days before he first contacted me. She also tossed out two small game systems he had for the grand kids. No wonder he went silent for a while! Sounds like the relationship isn't on the best of terms right now! Anyways, I haven't tested the unit yet, though it did clean up fairly nice. I will have to clean up the keyboard and mouse I found and try it. The battery looks good inside yet and at the very least I have a fairly unmolested Woz edition.
