Although there can be many more opinions than there are candidates for lists such as these, I sometimes like to recall pertinent bits of historical grandeur instead. I happen to like the Amiga 1000 as it happened to be lightyears ahead of the IBM PC, and the Apple Mac, it's intended competition.
Here's a quaint old commercial of the Commodore 64 from back then (see link below) that really emphasizes the innovation, impact, industrial design, and intangibles, that PC World is apparently trying to detect. Some of you might have seen this already, but it's nice to look at it again. I like to collect these as I go along, something to add to the memories.
BTW, it might be something to add to your new museum, having video monitors strategically placed around the facility playing back old commercials or documentaries, as people stroll thru the hallways of the computer collection.
