If the Commodore Amiga/Atari ST were alive today, is this what they would look like?

    One of the offerings from Cybernetman.com, an all-in-one (zero footprint) computer that just needs a monitor to work!!! (Look familiar?)

    Not quite an All-In-One then, more an All-In-Two...

    I think it actually reminds me more of the Commodore 64, but ouch that track pad looks like RSI material for right-handed people.

    Absolutely not. That thing looks worse than the 15-year-old Amiga 1200.

    I was thinking it looked worse than a 25 year old BBC.

    If the iMac had a drive tray and looked like a cheap LCD TV ...

    At least the PPC version of Amiga OS 4 was released, not you only have to wait another 5 years for the Intel port to arrive. ;)

    Atari's computers of the day (ST, ST Book and TT) were things of beauty... even more so than Apple's. :)

    Oh my beloved Amiga. It's a shame that thing died, I almost dropped out of the Nintendo/Sega side of things from 89 to 96 because of Commodore. But they have no place anymore.

    And the design is okay, looks more like a Dell machine though.

    I actually think that thing looks pretty cool. It's definitely easier to lug around than a Mini + kb and mouse. Will find a lot of friends in corporate and educational IT.

    But surely these days if you need to lug a computer around you would buy a laptop. That way you don't even need to worry about finding a screen to plug into.

    It actually looks... ok. Saying that, I wouldn't buy one.

    What happens when you spill a drink on the keyboard?

    I wonder if the computer has a video output that would let you hook it up to a (big-screen or not) LCD TV.

    Well spilling orange juice on an Amiga 1200 meant that it would stop working until you took it to the shop you bought it from and innocently said, 'I don't know why but it suddenly stopped working.' Then the orange juice would dribble out in front of the store manager. After that it would start working again though.
