They didn't indeed. The 6510 is a commodore custom IC. The apple2 and 2plus could be expanded to 64k via a 'language card' in slot 0. This allowed users to work around the need to have two basic roms handy by way of loading whichever rom image wasnt on the motherboard into the extra 16k. The language card is emulated in hardware on the later apple2's, and is used to store Apple's ProDOS code during runtime. -jbev On Sun, 29 Mar 2009, Niklas Ramsberg wrote: > Hej Allihopa! > > On Sat, Mar 28, 2009 at 5:30 AM, Bil Herd <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > Ah, the quintessential 64k machine, Apple could only get to 48K back then > > They didn't have the 6510 with its bankswitching capabilities.
