Man discovered 30-year-old Apple computer in his parents’ attic and it still works fine


A man found a 30-year-old Apple computer in his parents’ attic and to his surprise, the computer is still fully functional!

John Pfaff, a law professor at Fordham University found the Apple IIe computer when he combed through his parents’ attic.


Curious with the surprising discovery he made, Pfaff later found that the computer was still in working condition. That was when he decided to insert an old game disk and took a nostalgic trip down the memory lane.

The vintage computer asked the man if he wanted to restore the previously saved game, Adventureland and obviously, he went along with it.

According to the man, the discovery made him feel like a 10-year-old kid again.

The game was one of the many classic games he played while exploring the computer. Pfaff also played MillionwareOlympic Decathlon, and Neuromancer.

Nevertheless, the old games were not his best discovery yet.

Pfaff later found a letter written by his father which he wrote to him in 1986 and saved it on the computer.

He was only 11 when his father wrote the letter.

According to Pfaff, the letter was especially special as his father passed away a year ago. The letter contains thoughts that his father had while young Pfaff was in a summer camp.

Pfaff also shared his nostalgic moments on Twitter in which he wrote a series of tweets of his discovery and it quickly went viral on social media.

His tweets regarding the memorabilia have gained over 169,000 likes and 29,563 retweets.

The Apple IIe computer was released in 1983 and it was the third model of Apple II series.
