Compaq PROlinea 4/50
(i dont consider this system in the main collection, die to being not interesting to me + the state of the case is a bit miserable, compared to my DeskPRO system. I will sell/ trade that PROlinea for something i like)

I've always liked the cakebox style, I have several of them. Then it seems everything went to towers after my 486's.
Lets say both. I prefer bigger systems and parts, or better to say the ones that have more of full functionality. I also dont like small/ micro systems prefer not only normal size, but even some big ass mutha systems such as Compaq SystemPRO or IBM PS/2 Model 60/ Model 95. Good they did move to tower style, i never liked (still dont) the desktop style cases, only some rare ones i do prefer over towers. And yes the condition too is a bit shitty, dont get me wrong many will say that PROlinea is just very fine, yes but since my DeskPRO is like 98% preserved u see my point..
These are the main 2 spots that i really dont like specially the bottom this is rust... But aside from that inside the system is well preserved.. But the Compaq logo color is washed out...
