143KB: Simply Enough
Removing the thick metal shielding, we reveal the full glory of the IIc's internal drive for the first time since its manufacture. Check out that beautiful array of resistors on the left and the smokin' read/write head motor on the right corner of the unit.
The IIc's drive was nothing special for 1984 — like the Disk II, it could store only 143KB on single-sided disks. One good feature, though: The IIc drive had a special latch that the user pushed in to open and pushed down to close.
