    Default Want to remember name of then buy the "futuristic" generic green //e monitor with no bezel

    Can anyone help me track down the make and model of the green or amber composite monitor my parents had for our family Apple //e. I can't find any sign of it on eBay or Google Images (but lots of photos of Amber Heard which is quite distracting), yet my memory is distinct. Maybe you have one I can buy.

    Here's a rough sketch of the monitor. The screen is edgeless as you can see.
    The case color is beige.


    - It wasn't Apple branded I think
    - It had little or no visible bezel (plastic frame) around the screen
    - Quite rounded, not a square looking monitor
    - Just sheer shiny perspex from edge to edge, but this was tinted dark to hide what must've been a normal thickness bezel
    - That front perspex was curved, almost like you were looking at the front of a cathode ray tube out of its housing
    - The case sides and top were more standard
    - I think it had a pivoting stand below, that would slide-rock back and forth, changing the angle but also tucking the front base backward as it rocked
    - Overall quite 70s "futuristic" looking
    - Sold in the UK at least, around 1980

    Resembled this Indesit T12 B&W TV in shape, but with the aforementioned stand, and with green screen, beige case, and rounding down to more of a pinch at the back rather than the boxy shape.

    These are similar to give you an idea but are NOT the one I'm looking for:


    Another similar monitor, but not triangular, no vent holes, screen less exposed at the edges, more beige!:




    Another similar monitor:


    (Not the monitors I'm looking for)

    Thank you!!

    Looks like there's a name tag in that silver strip on top but can't quite make it out yet.

    Thanks but I did mention that isn't the actual monitor, it's just a fairly close resemblance
