Ok, real #retrocomputing realtalk. In your opinion, what’s the most esthetically pleasing old computer or terminal?
Here’s my top 3 (list subject to change without notice due to new finds and whims)...
@thomasfuchs There’s some extra prizes!

@thomasfuchs IDEAL's 1979 Electronic Detective is the first device I remember being utterly fascinated by. The buttons! The bleeps and bloops! The Don Adams ads!
My older brother received it as a gift, but I was repeatedly told that it was beyond my 5-year old grasp (I also assume it was rather expensive, which was another reason I was never allowed to touch it.)
I never did get to play it but it certainly awoke something deep in my nerd brain. I got a Speak & Spell not long after.
@thomasfuchs Honorable mention in the "My big brother had it and I wasn't allowed to touch it" category is Mattel Classic Football.
