"Essentially an updated version of the Apple II, the II+ came with 48K RAM, and a new auto-start ROM for easier start-up and screen editing. It also included a new flavor of Basic in the ROM: a floating point version written by a new company called Microsoft. It was released in June 1978 and retailed for $1,195. The II+ was sold in Europe as the II europlus, which could display video in European PAL format, and had ESC sequences for European letters. It was replaced by the Apple IIe in 1983."
