That's normal for an Integer BASIC Apple II, actually. Integer
BASIC isn't big enough to require the $Dxxx address space, so
those sockets were left empty for add-on ROMs. The chip in the
D0 socket is probably the "Programmer's Aid" chip, which contained
a collection of subroutines for assembly language programming.

Neat! Yes, it runs CP/M and has WordStar.
