Yeah, I wonder about that too. Why does my Sun 3/160 have a metal case
that uses thicker steel than a 1955 Buick?
Were early computers built to military specs to be dropped out of
airplanes and survive the crash? Or were they built to military specs
to be dropped out of airplanes and be used as weapons?
The only thing I can figure (given the fact that modern servers are
heavy as well), is that computer manufacturers are in collusion with
data-center floor contractors.
