    The Amiga Walker's design had been compared with many Vacuum Cleaners, K-9 from Doctor Who & Darth Vader's helmet (2:59)

    I think it would’ve been better if the first computer had ports and plugs at the front.

    2nd is actually decent and has an impressive design

    3rd the kids computers are cute and could’ve been a toy instead of an actual PC

    Fun to watch. I'm a bit surprised I didn't see the Sinclair/Timex computer in here.

    I really miss those crazy desings… today everything is a rectangle, the monitor is a rectangle, the keyboard is a rectangle, the pc case is a rectangle, the smartphone is a rectangle, the tv is a rectangle, probably the mouse is the only thing that still has some curves. Straight lines are boring and sad.

    The Amiga Walker always reminded me of some of the enemies from Panzer Dragoon II on the Sega Saturn.

    I've got a plastation 2 dtl T-1000 the console development co.puter hybrid can be a pain in the but but the codewarrior idea is nologer supported for activation….. the developer tool is a cool Linux pc console hybrid using Redhat 5 or 6….
    And is kinda slow but the ultimate region free ps2.. You're gong to shell out close to $1,000.00USD… used and working and weighs in at 36lbs yes 36 pounds… I've wanted saturn and dreamcast developer kits with hardware and debugging consoles…

    Hey I loved my boring beige box! I had a Microsoft Windows 95 PC running a 144 MHz processor. That was my first PC that I owned.
