User Feedback: Green Screen 512ke

It is not hard to make one. you take the green phosphor picture tube from one of the little Apple IIc compact monitors (9" just like the mac one) and just swap it out for the macs. monochrome picture tubes are a continuous coating of one color, so these swaps arent difficult. now a color tube swap is a biotch to line up all the electron guns and what not.

what would be awesome is one of the protoypes with a 5.25" drive, which is even accidentally included in some of the early ads
