I believe KISS tends to apply in these cases. In general, I find
that I like blockier ones more.
I won't get myself started on modern case design, but I will say
that I do not find any of the "home computers" by Compaq, Toshiba,
Acer, and Sony to be very nice-looking.
Of classic computers, the TI 99/4a probably is in that vicinity...
