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.

Nice to see the PS2 in that list, it's a very nice looking system... It's development kit counterpart (the T10k) looks equally cool too, which is rare.

I think the Sharp X68000 ( http://www.h5.dion.ne.jp/~xn68000/Computing/Oldies/X68000/index.htm... ) is another nice looking computer which is rarely mentioned ;)

Mouse of Sharp X68000

What was so special about the mouse?
「丸い部分は90度回転させることができ、マウスカ ソルの動きを上下方向/ 左右方向が入れ替えることができました。これだけ は何の役にたつのか わかり難いと思いますが・・・・」
Can someone explain? What's the use case of moving the mouse cursor up and down?

I must say, I totally fell in love with that X68000 last night. We were discussing it in #haiku last night and the verdict was more or less unanimous: what a great looking device!

I hadn't heard of it yet. Thanks!
