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!:

(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 :)

Wow so close. But no cigar charger.

The case didn't have the triangular shape like your Comrex does:

Also the buttons on top are different and the overall look was much less 70s.

But from the front the exposed tube style is very close.

Thanks!
