Apple beige

Apple Computer attracts the kind of obsessive attention to detail from users and fans which no other computer manufacturer has ever achieved. Let's face it, only Apple could drive someone to delve into great lengths to discover what actual colour the company's earliest computers were. They were supposed to be Apple beige but like everything else surviving examples (like my Apple IIe below - this model was a slightly darker beige than earlier Apple IIs by the way) may have shifted in colour after exposure to light. So, what actual colour was the beige these computers were created in during the late 1970s and early 1980s? The article is worth visiting alone for the photo of the Apple Computer beige touch-up paint jar, that must be a very very rare surviving Apple artifact!
