Brown Apple II?

I noticed in the Apple II Forever video that there was a photo of a brown Apple II computer. Was that painted or did it come like that?

Re: Brown Apple II?

I looked up "Apple II Forever video" in Google and came up with this:

is this what you meant?

I then sat through the video. There is one place about 3/4 of the way through (starting at 2:23) that blinks through a bunch of different cases, started with a wooden Apple-I thorough to an IIe. One of them kind of looks brown as it's fading in or out... but it's only for about one frame of footage. Is that what you're talking about?

Apple II computers only came from the factory in beige, platinum, and black (when re-badged by Bell and Howell).

Yes.

That is what I'm talking about. But it seams it is brown. There is a clear difference between the white and that. And that could not have been a Bell & Howell Apple II because the logo on the front case wasn't the "Bell & Howell" logo. I paused the video and did some observing, looks brown to me.

I saw two,...

in that same section. The first one only flashes for about one frame, but the second is on for a few frames (still not very long), I think there was one computer between the first brown and the second brown.

It really looks like one from this video:

They experimented with different colors on the cases. I never knew that until I saw this video! Look at 2:59 in the video and you will see it.
