Apart from retro games like Neuromancer and Olympic Decathlon, the professor also found old letters on the computer typed by his father who passed away in 2018.

A law professor is having a blast from the past after discovering his 30-year-old Apple computer, hidden in the attic of his parents’ house, is still in perfect working condition. The dusty computer found by John Pfaff is an Apple IIe, the third model in the Apple II series launched in 1983.

The computer was still able to run games from the 1980s and Pfaff expressed his delight through a series of Tweets.

“Oh. My. God. An Apple IIe. Sat in my parents’ attic for years. Decades. And it works. Put in an old game disk. Asks if I want to restore a saved game. And finds one! It must be 30 years old. I’m 10 years old again,” Pfaff wrote on Twitter with pictures of games that were available on the computer 30 years ago.
