Apple IIc Plus
The Apple IIc Plus is the final model of the Apple II series produced by Apple Computer in 1988.
It has a 65C02 CPU running at 4MHz, 128KByte of RAM which was expandeable to 1.125MByte. It came with a 3.5" floppy disk drive and ran the ProDOS operating system. The machine itself was not really an upgrade to prior models, but rather integrated some of the existing peripherals of prior models into one machine. Being an 8-bit machine, it lacked in performance compared to the much more advanced 16-bit Apple II GS.

MOS 6502 CPU
The 6502 is an 8-bit MicroProcessor designed by MOS Technology. The team was led by Chuck Peddle and had also worked on the Motorola 6800. The 6502 is a simplified, but faster and cheaper design than the 6800.
The 6502 was introduced in 1975 and was the cheapest microprocessor on the market. Together with the Zilog Z80, the 6502 helped start the home computer revolution of the 1980s. The 6502 was used in a wide range of devices: the Atari 2600, the 8-bit Atari home computers, the Apple II, the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Commodore 64, the BBC Micro and many others. All used the 6502 or a variation of it.
The 6502 is a 1MHz design, while the 6502A is designed for 2MHz. The 6502A is 100% compatible with the original 6502.
Commodore soon bought MOS Technology, but conitnued to sell the microprocessor to competitors and licensed the design to other manufacturers.Source: WikiPedia - MOS Technology 6502
