This doesn't just apply to the visual aspects of the computer, right? As
far as the most artistically-funtional machines I've seen, the new HP
Vectras are my favourites. A true tool-less design, everything is designed
with ingenious slides and hooks and brackets. It also has some nice curves
on the front panel, but is otherwise very plain looking. Granted, one of
the fun things about working with classic systems is the nifty tools you
tend to accumulate, but it's easy to appreciate the thought and
inventiveness that has to go into making a machine that can be completely
disassembled using nothing but a coin.
