Who knew there was a worse mould than the Jaguar to buy? I wonder if this story will be equally spectacular to watch?

"A really 1990s edge to the look"

Reminds me how bad the 90s were.

Reminds me how RAD the 90s were.
Compared to todays boxes the GX4000 looks like a work of art

True. Just a shame such a great piece of kit is in such a naff case.

If I had one of those then I don't think I'd care what it looked like in all honesty!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Another cool retro emergence, there's really a market for this stuff.

I think it looks okay, but the original PCE was a gorgeous thing of beauty. Much rather see it like that :)
