Essentially an extension of the Apple II, the II Plus came with 48K RAM, and a new auto-start ROM for easier start-up and screen editing. It also included a new flavor of Basic in the ROM--a floating point version written by a new company called Microsoft. It was released in June 1978 and retailed for $1,195. The IIplus was sold in Europe as the IIeuroplus, which could display video in European PAL format. It was replaced by the Apple IIe in 1983.
