Almost no information about this computer, except it was one of the numerous Apple II clones the world market was becoming flooded with from 1983.
The motherboard design was quite the same as the Apple II+'s. However, only one case housed this board as well as one or two floppy drives, and the keyboard was detached from the main unit.
This Orange 2 followed a first model with built-in keyboard, called Orange+
We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system,
please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
I used to own one of these. I was the Orange 2 "Wildcat" and mine had 64k of RAM. I had a few different Apple games for it, but the one I remember most was a game called Droll. This was my second computer. The first computer I had was the APF Imagination Machine. Thanks for keeping these memories Alive. I didn''t know if I would EVER see pictures of these computers again. You made my day. :)
These two computers were responsible for my interest in graphics, and I''ve gone on to become a 3D Animator of movies like "Anastaisia" and "Titan A.E."

Hey, this one looks *exactly* like the Orange2 I once owned. Even the sticker on the Keyboard looks familiar ;-)
The Orange was distributed by a company named "Arhelger" so at least in Germany it might be more common with that name.
BTW: Afair the Orange used a genuine Apple-Mainboard....
