A Woz in Every PC by 1984
In this mostly blurry back view of the motherboard, you can see (from left to right) the external disk drive connector, the video-out, the RGB-out, serial port 1, the power jack, and the power switch.
I should also mention the nifty chip positioned directly behind the video port called the IWM, or Integrated Woz Machine . Apple's engineers managed to squeeze the disk controller...er, the entire being and mechanics of Steve Wozniak's existence onto a single chip, so that each Apple II computer thereafter would contain its own miniature Woz to diagnose and fix problems that might arise.
