This computer is in very rough cosmetic condition. It was in the trunk of a car for at least a year before I took ownership of it.
Following are exterior cosmetic shots of the computer.

I'm going to breakup the lines and lines of image links to say something about computers.
This computer has 6 ports on it that most computers today either don't have or are not going to have in a few years. The pink port is the parallel port. You usually connect up a printer here, though other common expansion devices that use this port are modems and external hard drives. Sometimes, DRM devices utilized this port. Another port is the serial port. You can find this today on servers and some business-grade hardware.
Another somewhat common port here is the VGA port. This can still be seen on a lot of desktop computers, but it (and DVI) is increasingly being phased out in favor of HDMI and DisplayPort connectors.
The green and purple ports at the top are PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports. These were introduced in 1987 when IBM introduced the Personal System/2 computer featuring these ports, hence the name PS/2. These are rarely seen on computers these days, but are still alive and well in laptops as an internal connector in a non-standard format to connect the keyboard and mouse.
Finally, the connector above the Ethernet port is a FireWire 1394 port. This has been completely phased out in favor of USB for data transfer. Cameras, camcorders, external hard drives, and various other devices used this port.

Technically, this could be considered internal, but it's still part of a major exterior component of the case. Angry about this? Send complaints to /dev/null.
