Default What type of computer was this?



I'm talking form factor from the 90's. Not a tower drive obviously. Don't think they were called desktops either (or were they?)

Just one of those stupid things that entered my head today and is annoying the shite out of me since.

Oh dear sweet lord look at that keyboard

Other than a curved CRT, that is PC perfection imo

Flat ones are desktops, tall ones are towers. And ones with Macintosh written on are PCs for people who will pay extra for a PC if they're told it's not a PC, a marketing gimmick that Apple have evolved to huge success

Bonus points for the yellowed front of the monitor's base, btw. Needs some fag ash between the keys though

Desktop, Jebus

I thought they were called something like a letterbox PC.

Used to get really thin ones from Elonex years ago, got called pizza boxes, not an official name though. If that's what you're thinking of?

Could be. Haven't a clue what got me started on this now.

Mini-stroke probably.

The company the Mrs worked for in the early 90s sold off their Amstrad PCWs in about 92 or so, bought one for 50 i think.

You could do virtually nothing with it tbf, but it was nice having a machine of some sort in the attic we had in our house, the attic was a rather basic 'man cave' set up with my record player, cindy crawford calendar and two types of stash.


This is something like the set up i had
