I remember clear plastic Apple ][ lids. In fact I think I remember
seeing them for sale in Computerland in Rockville, MD way long ago,
but can't recall whether they were made by Apple or just made to fit.
Just the thing to show off your new computer inside its boring beige

Apple is not alone in the clear-plastic business. I've seen clear
cases for some older HP calculators from the mid-to-late 1970s.
