Not what I expected to see when I opened up an Apple IIgs with a note saying: "Failed CPU test."

@baldengineer I think it was the reading test that was failed

@GustavinoBevilacqua It’s supposed to be a 65c816. This one isn’t even a CMOS variant. It makes no sense this one would be in a IIgs.

@Computeforloot It was super odd. I bought a lot of four "for parts" IIGS with a bunch of other random parts. Each computer had a W65C02 taped inside, and 3 of them had 6502s in the CPU socket. So, 7 total processors, of which, 5 are functional.

I sincerely think someone was very confused when troubleshooting them.
