Why is transparent hardware so fucking aesthetic? Consoles like that looked so good even other people started doing it as well back then.Hell, look at this. Even PCfags have to admit it's pretty fucking nice, look at this and tell me it isn't the comfiest shit you've ever seen.
Aesthetic, yes.Comfy, not by a long shot.

>>458663497Bottom left best boi, fight me IRL if you disagree>>458663562Explain how that is not comfy as fuck
As a kid I really liked the show Reboot so I would pretend all my cool transparent electronics had miniature cities in them
>>458663039>>458663497>>458663562Feels cyberpunk to me, I love it.

>>458663640It's irritating seeing most of the housing have nothing but empty space, specifically for PC cases.
>>458663039it looks like shit
>>458664034>specifically for PC casesThose are for when you fall for the RGB meme

Are those translucent Switch shells off Amazon actually any good?
No, it looks like cheap chinkshit plastic and the most likely reason you nogs find this "aesthetic" is due to your nostalgia
>>458663816>post obvious b8>take the b8Stay mad faggot.
>>458664525>your nostalgia is nostalgiaWhat tipped you off?
>>458664525>No, it looks like cheap chinkshit plastic
>>458664427Probably. I mean it's just plastic. As long as you pay more than 25 bucks for it it shouldn't be terrible quality.
>>458664379What the fuck is that
>>458665714test benchIf you want a nice PC case with glass panels check out the inwin 901
>>458665812>RGB shit for a testbenchNigger what the fuck
>>458665812>If you want a nice PC case with glass panels check out the inwin 901>No frontal fansGarbage.
>>458663039God, old Mac OS looks aesthetic as fuck, the new versions are soulless
>>458667709This fucking homosexual is inflating everything and ruining all I used to love.
Is asthetic because they had to stop doing it in 98 when rumble was added because seethru rumble controllers look like sex toys on switch pro Nintendo had the decency to hide the motors but its still dodgy Only thing that should be transparent is Nintendo handheld thou It looks bad on switch thou But good on GB/sp/ds It was originally a GB thing Fairly sure the trend started when designer realised prisons have transparent electronics to stop people hiding stuff in side Now devices are so small and not CRT that prisons no longer do this I agree I have nostalgia for it but buying a transparent game pad is embarrassing and all the recent transparent consoles look shit as it has metal frame under plastic that hides everything due to EMI laws
>>458667935Fucking this. Ever since Jobs died, Apple has not done any innovation, it's just been making its products worse and worse.
>>458668416>seethru rumble controllers look like sex toysYou're the only person to think this, ever.
>>458667935>all I used to love>Apple productswow. you must be a pretty empty guy.(also, he does have that faggot pedo look on him)
>>458668697>you must be a pretty empty guyI've been dead inside for 10 years straight.
iToddlers actually like this shit lmao? You guys really can't live with muh aesthetic can you? You're worse than the teenage girls that drop a grand on the shiny new candy color iPhone every year haha. Stop buying Apple products and you won't be disappointed by their shitty design choices.
>>458669040Ah there we go the retarded Sataniaposter strikes again. Stop ruining her you cocksucker asshole motherfucker.
>>458668479Apple used to make products you wanted before you knew you wanted them, now they're falling behind most other tech companies. Wasn't this guy groomed by Steve Jobs to be his successor? Did he really expect that this was how he would run the company?
>>458669995Homosexuals ruin everything. I don't know why Steve thought this was the right choice.
>Mom walks in>She can see the furry porn in your hard drive
>>458671028FUCK ME IT ALL LOOKS SO GOOD
*ahem*Fuck iMac and fuck iMac aesthetic.Gil Amelio was the best CEO that Apple ever had.
>>458671245>Fuck iMac and fuck iMac aestheticDepends on what iMac
>>458671028We can't even have quality transparent consoles anymore because there are metal shields hiding the insides.
>>458663039transparent hardware always look cheap
>>458671028i have all those ps2 mem cards they were like 10-15 bucks for all on ebay japanese ones
>>458671731It does not.
Back when hardware used to have soul
>>458672712Yeah it does
>>458672820That consumerist piece of trash is the definition of soullessThis is TRUE SOUL
>>458672907It fucking does not.
>>458673154Hell yeah it does
>>458672712Well why are you only posting cheap looking hardware?
>>458673335DON'T FUCKING TEST ME NIGGA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>458663497>>458671028As an 18 yo man who never owned classic game consoles I find these awesome as fuck and wish they made my switch like that.
>>458673842>18 yo>manLol, listen to this kid.
>>458663039I honestly think clear hardware looks cheap and shitty, but I'd take it over all the RGB faggot shit that's going on nowadays.
>>458674594Your opinion is wrong. It looks good and RGB is not entirely bad as long as you only display one color at a time.
>>458673393Post something that's not "cheap" then
apple's going downhill by being too greedy.MacBook's are so fucking expensive less and less people buy them.iPhone sales are getting lowerthe “pro“ segment (iMac/iMac Pro/Mac Pro) is a fucking jokethey're gonna get Nokia's soon. I still have my 2013 MBA, rocking like day one. I bought a 2017 iMac and the shit quality is way inferior.
>>458667709i miss os 9. that was peak soul.
>>458676337>I still have my 2013 MBA>tfw my 13 inch 2014 MBP is starting to shit the bed while editing video
>>458676451actually my MBA's battery is dying but I guess it's okay for a 6yo laptop. Never had any problem, shit's powerful enough for playing few indies, browsing, few editing, casual photoshop and mainly taking notes.iMac on the other hand have been trouble since day one, I wish I could sell it
>>458676696>I wish I could sell itWhy can't you?
>>458663039honestly it looks cheap as fuck.
>>458676778Oh my fucking god
>>458664525>it looks like cheap chinkshit plasticmost electronics is cheap chinkshit plastic, and instead of dressing it up with some fancy black matte finish it's better to show it for what it actually is.
>>458676761no one wants to buy it + i'll loose money because the one I have is the high tier model.I'm gonna keep it, sadly now I just use it for videogames. Light working is not as comfy on an iMac, and I don't have any real editing job to do with it nowadays.
>>458677058>sadly now I just use it for videogamesNigga you what
>>458677515it's shit but it's okayplayed GTAV all max without lag when it came out
>>458675087That's why I said RGB nowadays. It's just all flashing queer shit now.But clear hardware still looks cheap and shitty to me, you can have it.
>>458677704How did you play GTA V when it came out if it's a 2017 iMac?
>>458677897Make the buttons black and it's GOAT
>>458676764This.Like some dime store toy they didn't bother to color the plastic on.Unlike pic related.
>>458669040I was thinking of buying an ipad pro but are there any other alternatives tablets that are really great to draw on?
Does anyone wanna see my piss yellow transparent dreamcast?
>>458678023why japanese computer have so much soul?
>>458678315Nah.I'm old enough to remember this trash. Marketed at housewifes who were too imitated by real computers, and in no way as charming or functional as what came before. Pic related.
>>458678518Its an offical sega shell which was sold by them. Apparently the yellow one is pretty rare. Found it on Craigslist with a few games and controller for 50 bucks.
>>458678729>He likes beige plastic
Are there any aftermarket cases like this for current gen?
>>458678812Oh shit I thought you meant yellow as in "fucked by the sun" yellow.
>>458677515not that anon, but mac gaming isn't quite as terrible as it's memed to be. emulation works fine for most consoles, and openemu makes it very convenient. there's also porting kit, which makes a bunch of gog games playable on mac through wine. the dualshock 4 works straight out of the box through bluetooth without needing software like ds4windows.obviously, it's still not close to windows in terms of gaming. but it's not a barren wasteland either.
Christmas '98 was bomb.
>>458679232>but mac gaming isn't quite as terrible as it's memed to beYes it fucking ist. I own two MacsAnd emulation doesn't count. A fucking Pentium 4 PC can emulate shit.
>>458672820Which one is the soul
>>458678729i had one of those clamshell ibooks back then and thought it was the coolest thing ever. i kind of miss that era of apple.
>>458678863>>458679209Yup. Much better than what was basically the predecessor to all those transparent led light bullshit razer gay pride light shows we have today.
>>458679470don't get me wrong, i'm not saying it's optimal by any stretch of the imagination. just that it's not completely devoid of anything gaming-related like people think it is.
>>458679209Something wrong with it?
>>458679613And who the fuck is talking about led light bullshit razer gay pride light shows? You abysmal autist.
>>458663039this looks awfullike a lunch box
>>458679847They ain't far removed from those Mom-Macs and see trough gameboys.
>>458669995I think Jobs realized it was hard to find an innovator. Cook is good at just maintaining the company and being safe, which is all Jobs expected. And in their defense, they still have the sheeple audience because of it.
>>458663039Just ordered two of these bad boys.
>>458669995As long they keep making iPhones look cool and "premium" they will keep their audience But people are caring less and less about macbooks in general
The Switch pro controller is a nice throwback to this stuff.
>>458680091>Cook is good at just maintaining the company and being safe>Tim Cock[sucker]>Being good at anythingEverything's going to shit thanks to him and Steve would beat him up if he was alive.
>>458676778i never liked the look of these, you cant see anything interesting inside of it, so whats the point?
>>458663497That's translucent, not transparent, retard.
>>458678812Ive never seen this variation before.
>>458682370there's one on ebay right now for like 500 bucks
>>458663661sorry pc bro but apple is always gonna be more aesthetic
>>458678219Just pull the trigger, no regrets senpai.
>>458668697He rapes boys when he flies to China. Pretty well documented over there. Its how he and Spielberg became so close
>>458678315the only downside to the translucent plastic is how it yellows, I had one of these for a while and it was kind of gross how it aged
>>458682370Yellow dreamcast anon here. Neither did i. I knew there was blue and a few other offical sega shells but never had seen the yellow before i bought it>>458683538Yeah ive seen that one. Its been up for a while now. And its the only one ever listed.
>>458664034>but empty space>doubting structural integrity
>>458679613that is fucking sexy but so are transparent game boys
>>458663039I wish they made one like this for the New 3DS XL
>>458676337>they're gonna get Nokia's soon.More like BlackBerry.
>>458684892New blackberries are cool tho
>>458685356I agree. But look at Blackberry now and compare to what they used to be.
>>458668748oh yes, the sumerian ruins of Az Ooz
>>458678219Surface proRuns full windows too so you can use the same software you do on your main computer
>>458663661>imac mini + egpu > pc
It looks like a child's toy. Which, oddly enough, is what all crApple hardware looks like. And, oddly enough, is the intelligence level of crApple useds (users actually are in control of their systems; useds are, well, being used.).
>>458686728Honestly there wasn't much they could do Their whole identity back then was super secure enterprise stuff and physical keyboardsWhen try tried to go full touch screen with the storm it sold way less than their normal handsetsI do agree they should have been more aggressive with letting people develop apps to their platforms, but then again, it would go against their super secure identity since they couldn't let people go nuts like apple did early on
>>458663039your telling me m8
>>458687565I was a kid and I remember how bb was the phone. Everybody wanted one, but it was too expensive.Then the iphone came and destroyed blackberry because it was the same price but did much more.
>>458687185You must be a fucking idiot to recommend that to someone who wants to draw.There is nothing worse than the digitizer on the Surface and its godawful pen.At least recommend a real drawing tablet like a Wacom or Chinese garb like Huion.Rant aside, I demo'd the iPad Pro and also demo'd the surface tablets, the feel on an iPad pro is far superior due to the minimal amount of paralax (space between glass and display). The iPad will feel more natural when it comes to drawing as well because it has a high refresh 120Hz screen.
What was the last "real" era with soul here?
>>458688950nostalgia is a poison
>>458689369You're a poison
>>458678219iPad pro is insane for drawing. Just got mine a week or so ago and im really loving it.
>>458678023this looks fucking cool
the rgb trend is shit, everything looks like a youtuber's intro clip
Imagine seeing bugs crawl around the insides.
>>458663039Tacky as fuck
>>458690870>Being a fucking pig
>>458678023that's the most beautiful videogame hardware ive ever seen
>>458691425Had an ant crawl into the GBC speaker holes once. Good times.
>>458668416fuck off, I loved watching the rumble thing oscillating in my ps2 controller
>>458691804What the fuck
>>458671028>mfw the other kids were jealous of my purple crystal GBC
>>458692541I had a yellow pikachu one that all my friends really liked except for one who kept insisting it was fake and not a real nintendo product. Fuck you Daren, it was real.
>>458680220>tfw went from emulating on pc to emulating on a wii on a crt insteadim guessing that wouldnt work on a wii? looks comfy.
>>458663039looks cheap, actually, imo
>>458692836Is Wii emulation really that good? I couldn't even get my gamecube controller to work. Although I was using the smash adapter and it was a Wii U
>>458681048So is everything else in this thread
>>458664525Transparent plastics require it to be somewhat quality because if it wasn't, you would easily see the imperfections.
>>458663039silver and black is better
>>458668416every word in this post is retarded
>>458680634>pcbs are interesting
>>458676778just bought one of these :]
>>458673842>18 y/o>manPick one.Also, just by a transparent shell you fucking mongoloid.
>>458696391While you got me on the typo, my point is still entirely valid and unchallenged
>>458664270nice, I had this as a kid but the full sized, not the pocket
