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.

How can you justify not including this? It litterally redefined what colours and form factor a PC(mac) could be. It has been emulated countless times and not just by PCs but also by periferal makers

Because I find it ugly as sin?

And I actually own one. I had it on display as a decorative item in my house for a while, even though I didn't like it. I had it on display because of its significance to Apple, not because it looks good.

Because darn, that thing is ugly.

Fair enough as an answer, except displaying things that are ugly in your house... If you dont like it, dont display it!

On a personal level I really did like them, they looked soooooooo much better than our 7600 at the time

That's because you aren't looking at it from the correct angle. The original iMacs a beautiful rear end. Turn it around so the screen doesn't show and look at once in awhile over a few weeks. It will grow on you.

No I didn't do that on purpose and most computers rear ends are the epitome of ugly.
