I've seen both I^2s (teal and purple) in real life. Nice, both of
them. And I routinely see an O2 in real life, and feel a sharp stab of
pain (but not as badly as when I see the Onyx sitting nearby, untouched
in 2 years).

I guess the first real computer I saw was an alpha micro. I wasn't that
impresssed. I was deeply impressed by the first SS10 (with ZX board!)
and 4/330 I saw though.
