A part of me wishes technology had never advanced past this point (although I realize that this fantastic website, nor any other website, would now exist were that the case) simply because those '70s-early '80s computers looked so damn cool. Give me faux-wood paneling over silvery sleekness any day.

I too love the awesomely modernist look of the early home computers. And it's got a tape deck! How cool is that?!

Best damn computer ever. I don't care how many models they come up with, I'm keeping mine!

Keyboard shrunk to Lilliputian size so the cassette drive could be planted up front. That's showing ergonomics who's boss.
