Apple //e Platinum International edition? (Part II)

logo_s
I was able to obtain this model that i had wanted ever since i became aware of such model had been made, but it was very hard to find. Luckily was able to get one from Sweden where it seem to have been more common than over here in Finland. Not actually even sure if it was sold here at all, most likely not. It came also with SWE/FIN-keyboard that is very nice and proves it was indeed localized as well!

INTERNATIONAL NTSC – uses the PAL IOU to get 50Hz, but the video signal is a 50Hz NTSC rather than PAL.

Elsewhere?

So far i know these were sold in Europe in various countries as well in Australia but very few of them seem to pop out in public or the internet for some reason. It would be interesting to learn the history of these hybrid-machines as well  reasoning for the choise of different case and parts and not creating an similar product as in the States.
