I have three Apple IIe's (non Platinum) and on one of them, the open/close Apple keys are much larger than the other two. It's almost the size of the entire key. In fact, it almost looks comically large...lol

I can't say that I like it or hate it. I thought about swapping them out for my primary IIe and see if they would grow on me. Smile

So when did Apple decide to shrink them?

Can you post Pictures??

Is the one with the Larger Open Apple/Closed Apple have White lettering and lighter colored keys??

The Earlier Apple ][es have White Letters and Fairly Light colored keys..

The Later Apple ][es have Black Letters and Fairly Dark colored keys.. And the "font" is smaller..
