A Platinum //e is an enhanced Apple //e with a built-in numeric keypad on
the right hand side. It's also got the "platinum" covering. Nothing

There was also a Platinum //c. It had an extremely nice keyboard (a major
improvement over the //c's crap keyboard).

They are definitely work horses. I've never met an Apple //e that was so
fargone it wouldn't work anymore. I even have Apple ][+'s that have sat
in horrible conditions still work 20 years later, with just a few faulty
keys on the keyboard.
