I think my nomination for a cute computer design would be
the Pioneer MSX machine. Yes, Pioneer the Hi-Fi company
made a computer back in the 1980s. Of course, it looks
just like a hi-fi amplifier and the keyboard plugs into
the front panel. It would hide nicely in between your
CD player and amplifier...
