Also seen in Canada: Granny Smith and McIntosh.

And yes, I saw the "McIntosh" Apple ][ clones before the arrival of the
Macintosh. :)

I kind of wish I had bough a McIntosh rather than my Microcom clone, just
for the name. But Microcom had a large store nearby, with good support.
I don't know where the McIntosh and Granny Smith clones were coming from.
