"In March 1985 Apple introduced the Enhanced IIe. It was identical in every aspect to the original IIe, the only difference being four socketed chips had been changed on the motherboard: 6502, CD and EF ROMs, and the Video ROM. Essentially, the Enhancement was to make the IIe more compatible with the Apple II+ and IIc models.

In January 1987 Apple introduced the Platinum IIe. Changes were mostly cosmetic and superficial, with the biggest difference being that the case color was changed from beige to the then standard platinum/grey color." (photo credit: AppleDesign)
