    Default This Apple monitor does not exist...

    Hi friends, in a separate thread a couple of years ago I drew a terrible picture of a green display monitor I've been trying to track down. My dad brought it home around 1981 with a brand new Apple //e.

    It was time to get serious so I employed some help to create an "artist's impression"! Here it is:



    Do you recognize this monitor? Obviously some details from 38 year old memories might be off, but I have a pretty clear memory of it as I used it every waking moment!

    Key features:
    - Tilt/swivel stand
    - Amber monochrome display
    - Dark perspex over the whole screen
    - Minimal or no branding

    Also, here are some monitors that are NOT the one. Although as you can see they share similar elements. Please kindly check these images to avoid repeat suggestions.

    Not the right monitors:



    Thank you so much in advance for helping me locate "the monitor that does not exist".

    So, just to be sure, there is absolutely no chance, at all, whatsoever, that this monitor was ever caught in any family photo, taken by your family or someone else your family knows?

    It's not this one, right?

    Just discovered the ‚Panasonic Action 6‘.

    Could it be the one?

    That's the crazy thing. We just never photoed that area. It was in a home office and just not photo worthy I guess!

    Sadly it's neither of those two but thank you!
