Ok, real #retrocomputing realtalk. In your opinion, what’s the most esthetically pleasing old computer or terminal?

Here’s my top 3 (list subject to change without notice due to new finds and whims)...

#3 Atari 800 (1979)

An extremely pleasingly friendly yet futuristic design. Those yellow keys!

#2 LexisNexis Terminal (1980s)

If computers were designed by Italian Memphis designers.

#1 Data General DS-100/200 (1979)

Those colors. Those curves.

@thomasfuchs There’s some extra prizes!

The Holborn 6100 wins best Monitor stand.



I presented the ISC Compucolor II with Intel 8080 CPU, 5.25" floppy disk, up to 32 Kb of RAM, and most importantly text and block graphics in glorious 8 bit color!
