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.

I'm sure it was, I took apart my old G4 Mini not long after I got it to up the RAM and it was a very touchy procedure. I didn't like the idea of shoving two metal putty knives into a $600 computer, but I did it right and didn't break anything. I wouldn't want to do it again though; even my eMac was easier to upgrade, and I had to take it halfway apart to add a bigger hard drive.

as on look at it, each iteration of a apple product seems to be less and less modification friendly.

about the only product of theirs that seems designed with ease of modification seems to be the mac pro...

but then im biased as i have not bought a pre-built system in ages...

ugh, just looked at the apple page and while the mac pro is more after market upgradeable then other apple products it still use what appears to be a very unusual motherboard and drive attachment system...

It was very easy to upgrade the RAM and hard disk in my Macbook, both are accessible through the battery area. Although I had to buy a Torx screwdriver to get the sled off the hard drive, which was a pain.
