Apple IIgs in Apple II case?

Seems like a cool find. Historically, all such upgrades have been 90% of
the purchase price for a new machine -- up to and including Apple's more
recent PowerMac upgrade boards, so I'm not surprised that it's rare.

If it's a mag like Byte or kilobaud, I'd love to know the issue #.

yes indeedy, apple provided an upgrade path for //e users. for $500 you got
new gs planar, and a sticker that replaced the lower case apple //e one with
//gs. of course, one of the caveats is you didnt get ADB and seperate
keyboard. i dont think many people upgraded due to the price. i have an old
magazine that had a writeup about the upgrade. if anyone's that interested i
can look up details or make copies. message me privately.

 As someone already pointed out, you have an official Apple product, a //e-
 to-//gs upgrade. When we got our family //e, I had fantasies about that
 upgrade, but we never got it (and I guess VERY few other people did
 I seem to remember the list price as around $800. $864? Something like
that. >>
