But then, how many PCs are there of which this can be said? I can think

*IBM PC - tony said it, not I
*Altair - I think the general consenus is that it was a cheap design
*IMSAI - The PSU and cooling design
*Apple /// - I guess the main problem w/these was the high-density board
*Mac Plus - The PSU and probably other stuff too
*VICs and C-* - I've heard almost everything about these

Of course, I would have included many modern computers, but one can hardly
give someone the techrefs for those :)

Any dangerous parts, like in the Mac Plus?
