        The one that says 'Osborne' on the side of the case is the
later variety with the more rigid case, which should be a more
standard beige or similar color. The other should have a more yellow
colored case and would be the original model. It's case isn't quite
as sturdy. It did have a cover over where the power cord coils into
but it was totally detachable. It more or less just snapped into
place vice the hinged variety of the later models.
