Consider the time frame. Also take into consideration
the entire package, including the packaging. Very
artsy fartsy I must say. There wasn't much else in the
period aimed to be stylish (until the Macs I guess, or
the Lisa). We've seen lots of crazy different stuff
since then, so I guess it's appeal can pale by
comparison to say an Indigo 2 :O.
Most of these things are just boxes regardless. A
designer doesn't have as much room for creativity as
say the case w/an automobile.
