My family had a Lemon, though I seem to remember the one we had being plastic, not painted metal per the above quote, but definitely bright yellow. It was sold to my parents around September 1984 when they bought an Apple //c from Hammett's in Braintree, MA (the ORIGINAL Apple store in South Shore Plaza!). I can remember the sales person giving my father the standard line of "You wouldn't want a power surge to ruin your expensive new computer, now would you? That's not covered by the warranty, so really this little surge protector is cheap insurance!"

Was it any good? Well, the computer never suffered from any power surges - though nothing else in the house did either, so... ?

I love the way they look. If they worked well by today’s standards, I’d use them!
