This configuration is an Apple-II Plus system running an Apple-III monitor, with a Disk II floppy drive. This same prop is used as both the Swan and Pearl Station computer (as evident by the Swan logo). At the Pearl Station, the computer is connected to a dot matrix printer with the “System Failure” log printout that alerted Desmond to realize what caused Oceanic Flight 815 to crash. At the Swan Station, the computer is used by Desmond to enter “The Numbers” every 108 minutes. It is the destruction of the Swan Station computer that prevented “The Numbers” from being entered and which led Desmond to trigger the fail safe mechanism, causing the Swan Station to implode. Of trivial interest is an 1980s film, entitled “The Self,” employed in some psychology classes today, which features an Apple-III computer monitor that is used to test the effect of positive personalities. Incidentally, the numbers 4, 8, 16, and 23 appear frequently in these tests. This could be the reason for the choice of the kind of computer.
