Could someone elaborate on this entry I found regarding the info on the German Apple IIe? Is this model capable of displaying colour via the onboard video output? Or do I need a graphics card of some sort?
APPLE IIE, IIC, AND IIGS
When the IIe was released, other modifications were made. The German version was built with an external switch below the keyboard, allowing the user to change between a standard U.S. layout and a German layout. (American versions of the IIe lacked the switch, but had a place on the motherboard that could be modified to allow a Dvorak keyboard layout to be switched in instead of the standard keyboard). The IIe auxiliary slot, which was placed in line with the old slot 0 on American versions (but moved forward on the motherboard) was placed in front of slot 3 on German versions, to accommodate the PAL video circuitry. Because the 80-column firmware was mapped to slot 3, if an 80-column card was installed in the auxiliary slot it was not possible to use any other card in slot 3. Versions of the IIe made for other European countries had similar modifications to account for regional differences.
