The original AppleVision

Of course, Stephen Hackett at 512 Pixels has the details about Apple’s re-use of the “Apple Vision” name:

Apple has had other products with “vision” in their names over the years. Seven products, to be exact, and all of them are long-forgotten CRT displays:

  • AudioVision 14 Display
  • AppleVision 1710 & AppleVision 1710AV
  • AppleVision/ColorSync 750 & AppleVision/ColorSync 750AV
  • AppleVision/ColorSync 850 & AppleVision/ColorSync 850AV

This was very early in my Mac career, but I do remember these monitors. Apple has proven remarkably adept at re-using names from its past when it suits them. This is the perfect opportunity for AppleVision—sorry, Apple Vision—to ride again.
