NEC APC III, anyone have one?

Hello all,

I just received a large lot of NEC APC III software and docs... Naturally,
this means I need an NEC APC III to go with it :-). I know it's a
not-quite-PC-compatible. Anyone have one they'd be willing to part with? I
assume I'd need the keyboard and system unit. Is the video output some sort
of standard, or would I need the monitor as well? Any help or hardware is

For the list, I'm willing to make copies of manuals or software. Disks I
can mail no problem, manuals will require you to pay my copying costs (all
manuals are a significant number of pages). Also, I'd need ZIP codes or
country to estimate shipping. One last note ... This is not super high
priority for me (in fact, I haven't gotten back to everyone from my last
round of stuff :-( ), so don't expect lightning speed out of me on copies.
If you can wait, I'd much rather scan these (600dpi), and mail a CD-ROM.

The software is as follows:

- APC III System Checking Diskette v5.0
- MS-DOS System Diskette v2.11 Revision 1
- MS-DOS System Diskette v2.11 Revision 3
- MS-DOS System Diskette v2.11 Revision 4
- Digital Research Logo ((c) 1984, "REV 00")
- MS GW-BASIC 2.01
- MS GW-BASIC Demonstration Diskette Version 1.0
- SLE* GW-BASIC and Utility
- SLE MS-DOS System Diskette
- Digital Research DR Draw (1983)
- Digital research DR Draw Fonts (1983)
- MS MASM 1.25
- MS-DOS BIOS Listing (5 disks, 1985)
- GSX System Diskette (1984) rev 01
- GSX Drivers Diskette (1984) rev 00
- GSX System Diskette (1984) rev 03
- GSX Drivers Diskette (1984) rev 01

* - SLE=Software Library Expander -- Allowed NEC APC III to run "more
programs". Part hardware, part software. Maybe some sort of PC-emulator??

Manuals are (I have multiple copies of most of these):

- MS-DOS User's Guide
- GW-BASIC User's Guide
- MS-DOS Guide for the SLE
- GW-BASIC Guide for the SLE
- MASM Manual, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2
- DR Logo User's Reference Guide
- Beginner's Guide to DR Logo
- MS-DOS Programmer's Reference Manual (Includes supplement for APC III)
- DR Draw User's Guide
- GSX-86 User's Guide
