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.

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

most 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.

no 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.

not 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.

Honestly there wasn't much they could do
Their whole identity back then was super secure enterprise stuff and physical keyboards
When try tried to go full touch screen with the storm it sold way less than their normal handsets
I 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

You 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.
