The P400 was the last machine (well, maybe the 450?) that
had a front panel. It was an interesting bump-out design,
but wasn't really very cool looking, when compared to an
Eclipse, or a KI-10, or hell, even a KL-10.

My 2455 has a virtual control panel like the 750 did. If
I had a real front panel, the damned thing might be running
right now.
