Thanks for your interest in Applesauce and being patient through the long delay in getting this 2nd run happening!
What should I order?
The Applesauce hardware comes in two models, Basic and Deluxe.
Basic ($225) includes everything that you need to connect an Apple Disk II floppy drive (which you provide) up to your computer. This is what you need to image Apple II 5.25″ floppy disks. If you plan on working with commercial (copy protected) disks, then a Sync Sensor Kit is strongly recommended (it is required for flux imaging). The Sync Sensor Kit is installed into a Disk II drive and is not a quick task to switch it to a different drive. If you want to have multiple drives ready to use with Applesauce, then you may find that you need additional Sync Sensor Kits.
Deluxe ($285) includes everything you need to connect an Apple Disk II, Apple 5.25 Drive or Apple 3.5 Drive up to your computer. This allows you to image everything the Basic model does and adds the ability to read/write 3.5″ Macintosh (400/800K) and Apple II (800K) disks. The Sync Sensor Kit is not needed for 3.5″ drives.
Both the Basic and Deluxe include an AC/DC power adapter (100-240V 50/60Hz) that has a US plug. You may need an AC plug adapter (not included) depending on your country.
Due to high demand and the small run size, Applesauce units are limited to one per customer.
When will it ship?
We have the boards in stock. The other components are ordered in bulk as orders come in. We are expecting to begin sending out orders beginning in mid January. If you ordered an Applesauce during the 1st run and are just looking for an upgrade board or sync sensors, those will begin shipping out the last week of December or beginning of January.
How can I make payment?
Currently we only support payment via PayPal. Once you submit an order, we will calculate the order total (including shipping) and send you a PayPal invoice. Depending on how busy things are around here, it may take up to 24 hours to create the invoice.
Be sure that your mailing address is correct in your PayPal account because that is what will be used to create the mailing labels. Tracking will be provided for all shipped orders.
How does being or not being on the wait list affect my order?
If you are on the wait list, the processing of your order will be prioritized to ensure that an Applesauce is made available to you before those who are not. There is however a quantity of units not reserved, which will be made available for immediate sale, so even if you’re not on our current wait list, you can still get an Applesauce! Once the non-reserved units are sold out, processing new orders will be delayed until the wait list has completed (wait list expires on January 14, 2019).
Upgrades for existing Applesauce owners.
If you already own an Applesauce, you can order a new revision 1 board to update your existing hardware. The installation is pretty straightforward and only requires a screwdriver, no soldering or other technical skills are needed.
