    Who knows... remember too how TVs and audio / electronic equipment all had that fake-wood-vinyl overlay ! Peeew.

    Maybe it all had to blend in ? Pc's / Macs with the furnishings of the offices at the time ... and TVs etc with the wooden decor of the TV cabinets etc ? Perhaps the consumer WANTED that at the time and the manufacturers had to comply.

    I would love to see brushed aluminium in different colours... rather than just the silver... but then again, I like lime green and orange computers... !!

    How about this cutting edge IBM portable?



    or the ever popular Commodore SX64?
