Damn right, pop a case on an Intellec and you'll just sigh. They're like
little minis inside. You know what else is just as nice the same way? The
Tektronix boxes built around the LSI-11....

It's like having a '56 or '57 Mercedes. The whole world knows how sexy and
pricey a 300SL is, be it the Gullwing or the roadster; but it takes a
_real_ connoisseur to appreciate, even to recognize! the same year's 300SC.
