There are also beige cables, like for the Beige Cassette player/recorder

 

I used to have the beige printer (MX-80 ?)

 

Is this the picture of the backside of the Cardboard box of the beige TI ?

(I do not have the box with me, but remember there is a similar picture).

The beige monitor and beige PEB never were produced ?  (but mantadoc painted one himself)

This is the Hex-Bus adapter correct ?

That is the Hex-Bus Interface because I see the Hex-Bus port.

The only thing even close to a beige PEB I've ever seen was a beige cover for the disk opening. Never seen an actual beige PEB or monitor except in images on TI boxes. The back of the beige 99/4A box had a picture with a beige system, Speech Synthesizer, Hex-Bus Interface, and a beige Program Recorder. Oddly enough, the telephone coupler, PEB, Pain Sticks, & monitor are black & silver in the picture.

 

The beige printer is an impact printer.

Looking carefully at that brochure,  surely Texas Instruments must have made a prototype monitor,  the logo on the monitor is in the corner,  below the screen, instead of on the door panel. 🤔

Does the SuperSketch count as Beige?

I wouldn't count the Super Sketch as it connects via the cartridge port. There won't be an MBX due to the joystick port being blocked by the beige Pain Sticks in the joystick port.

We would do a black & silver one with all five of the original sidecars+program recorder & disk drive. And the Thermal Printer.

 

The other one we will do will be beige with the Hex-Bus Interface and all six of the Hex-Bus peripherals, the Printer/Plotter, Disk Drive/Controller, Wafertape drive, RS232, Modem, and the Printer 80. Plus a program recorder, of course.

EDIT: It will all be connected to power. They will also both have a PEB with the sidecars (black/silver system will have the original, the beige system will have the later model of the PEB). Plus they will both have a monitor (black/silver system will have a TI monitor while the beige system will have a COMMODORE monitor). The Impact printer will be connected to the black/silver system even though it's beige (cause do ya really need TWO 80-column printers on one system??) So far we have dug out the P-Code sidecar, a Disk Controller, black Pain Sticks, and a TI Disk Drive for the black/silver system. For the beige system, we have only dug out the Hex-Bus Disk Drive/Controller and a pair of beige Pain Sticks.
