Recommended Posts

 

Cylon Number Six is the sexiest:

BBB's? (Big boobed blonds). I dunno... everyone I've ever met was either crazy, dangerous or very high maintenance. Of course that is just my experience.

All true ..

Thread was sexy not wife material.

 

I have a Sicilian wife a with nice handful for breasts. Nothing big on her other than an attitude but I like that sassiness. Extremely low maintenance.. no expensive hobbies and her aunt works at major cosmetic company so she gets endless free cosmetics/perfume! It saves me a fortune! Oh if we ever got in a fist fight she would probably beat me up. Some may consider this a negative. I don't.

Everyone knows it's the X68000.

I've never owned one or even seen one, but the X68000 was a monster gaming machine. It pretty much was an arcade machine disguised as a computer. Some of the best video game music out there:

Honestly, after how long this thread has been here, I'm surprised the Heathkit H89 has not been posted yet. It's design was an inspiration for a few other machines IIRC.

 

Nice, but I prefer the VT100. The brown colour scheme always reminded me of the Atari XL line. Here's mine with my DEC GIGI.

The GIGI even looks like a 1200XL.

I'd never use the word "sexy" when describing computers, cars, devices, etc. because I... wouldn't actually want to have sex with them. Maybe when we get Blade Runner style female replicants...

 

I've got about 10 of the computers listed in this thread... and a few more:

How about a Gateway Handbook 486? These were great in the day, about the size of a VHS tape with a full keyboard. I still have mine running Windows 95 with floppy attachment..

 

This is not my picture.. I remember, if you put in a PCIMA card running on battery. it would change from 45 min to about 5 min...it was trying to run a pop out network card :)

 

Very small and Sexy for it's day.

Here are a few more that haven't yet been mentioned.

 

The DEC VT05 terminal:

The Billings 6000 - keyboard, monitor and computer cases were chromed steel (a computer that would nicely match the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica):

Data General Dasher

And a weird one from Holland, the Holborn 6500:
