I'd say definately no to the IBM or the C-64.

As for the others, I always get confused... is the AppleColor High Res a
Mac monitor or the one that went with the Apple //gs?

If it is the Mac monitor, then I'd say no... it'd have a resolution of
640x480, but with really odd vertical and horizontal frequencies.

If it's the Apple iigs monitor, then it is a CGA resolution monitor,
but analog. It would work on an Apple //gs, probably could get a card
for the Apple II, and should be adaptable to an Amiga.
