Reminiscent of NeXT's "3M computer":


1 megapixel, 1 megabyte, 1 MIPS.

ISTM that the Sun-1 fails the megapixel requirement, but on further
reading, e.g. http://www.computerhistory.org/revolution/computer-graphics-music-and-art/15/218/615
, only narrowly.

I think I scanned the Wikipedia article too quickly this morning...
