Where great old Macs live again!

I found an old "Monitor ///" on ebay and the lighting of the shot reminded me of the fact that these monitors felt like they had nylons/stockings over them. It's as if the texture was because someone wrapped the tube in panty hose.

Weird stuff.

(Image snarfed from ebay auction - apologies to anyone that claims rights to the shot but think of it as advertising)

I remember a good number of //e's being sold with this thing.

Yes, we had one of those on our very first (DOA!) //e! That stocking-ish layer was the glare filter--or so I thought...

My very first computer, our //e, was purchased with the monitor ///. While it seemed to match the //e very nicely, I guess it was really designed for the Apple ///. I always wondered about the texture of the screen -- it was a pain to clean because it would grab hold of cleaning cloths!

Nice find. Can't get them over here. I've had to import all of mine.

The fabric screen was an anti-glare filter. The identical filter came as an option for the Lisa.

Regards,

JD

It certainly seemed to work until someone used a bit of a harsh cleaner on them.
