Gosh, you're right! Now that you mention it, I remember where I saw those rainbows over and over again. Could be that Commodore's casework designer got hung up on the idea and never let go of it.

There used to be a time when just about every cover of a computer magazine published by a certain company in Germany (Markt & Technik), in the 1980'ies, seemed to have been knocked together by a designer awfully fond of using an airbrush. This got old so quickly that the 80'ies weren't even over by the time you were sick of it

Of course, the wow factor has diminished over the decades...
Amen to that...
