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.

The Play Station 2. It is a square box. Yea it is black but it is kinda bland design. Just a Box.

The Sun Ultra 20. Yet just an other Square Metal Box. Bland.

IBM ps/2 model 50 This may be good for IBM but on the Top 10 list for most Beautiful computer. Come on Its design fails to impress.

The Next Cube, Just a black box... They have been around for decades.

There are other ones on the list that I personally don't like, but those are the ones I feel are way to dull of a design to be put on the list.

Replace the Play Station with a Cray.

The Ultra 20 I would replace with the G5 Power Mac. Those handles make it stand apart.

The ps/2 I would say the Amstrad 512k One of the few PCs which monitor fits in the case.

The Next Cube I would say give a G4 iMac.
