Ok, real #retrocomputing realtalk. In your opinion, what’s the most esthetically pleasing old computer or terminal?

Here’s my top 3 (list subject to change without notice due to new finds and whims)...

#3 Atari 800 (1979)

An extremely pleasingly friendly yet futuristic design. Those yellow keys!

#2 LexisNexis Terminal (1980s)

If computers were designed by Italian Memphis designers.

@thomasfuchs Looks like those keycap colors could easily be the basis for a novelty mechanical keycap set design today. I wonder what kind of switches that keyboard used.
