Hardware, Embedded Systems Every now and then, a computer comes along that makes a mark, that sets a trend, or that simply stuns you - but not because of its internals, its processor or its software, but because of its appearance. Through the history of computing, there have been a number of computers that were actually designed to appeal not just because of raw technology alone, but also because of stunning looks. Read on for a countdown of my ten most beautiful computers.

Apple //c

I always thought the Apple //c was an attractive design at the time, especially versus other luggable machines from the early 80's. Surprised it is not on the list versus things like the BeBox (which I love Be, I even used to write/sell software for it!). I suspect the author is picking from past computers he simply remembers and likes versus aesthetics. If that would be the case I would pick the Apple ][ and ][e, and the C64 not pretty but lots of fond memories.
