Wow!!! That is just gorgeous, true embodiment of the 70's computer
workstations that I remember seeing on TV long before I got to finally work
on computers in person. I remember seeing articles and even TV shows where
you saw computer systems that were integrated right into desks, I remember
seeing a lot of images of computers in brown faux wood desktops with
orange/yellow ascent drawers and such, true 70's look & feel.

Again... WOW!!!!! Cool!
