    Default What were the other private label Apple II+ called?

    Was doing a 'fanboy week' post on retrobattlestations and was trying to remember two private label II+ machines I'd seen, in addition to the Bell & Howell. One had something to do with church or music. I can just sort of picture the name but not quite. Came up on Ebay once. And there is one other which has totally escaped me. Might be more for all I know.

    The Clearlight SuperStar was a licensed Apple ][+ used to control multi-media slide projector shows, frequently used for religious events. I have a Disk ][ drive for one.

    They were painted gray in color.

    Here's the biography of one of the creators of the system, with some information: http://www.2live4.com/eric-bio.asp

    There's a picture of the system and the case badge on his bio.

    Ah yes. Thank you! And I remember one going for over $4k ebay. They fetch almost as much as a Rev 0!

    I still seem to think there was a third co-brand. Just can't remember what it was.

    Here's a previous thread discussing the Clearlight SuperStar: http://www.vcfed.org/forum/showthrea...ell-amp-Howell

    On page 4 of this thread, I posted a picture that shows a regular Disk ][, B&H, and Clearlight Superstar together.

    There was also the ITT 2020, which was essentially an Apple II computer.
