The 1980's, decade of great computers, and ugly fashion.

Since we're talking about the 80's... a friend of mine had a huge Batman-sticker on his C64.

I prefer a plain white/yellowed keyboard, both on PC and Amiga. A pure black keyboard can look nice as well and so can a colored one if it suits your taste and it's well done. Not that.

I dunno...
get a couple neon lights, a big midi keyboard, some pink velvet and a bit of lsd and it'd look pretty cool!

I am sure its rare and some people will want it for thier collection and pay alot for it I bet since its a factory design, still I think it looks ugly. The airbrushed one looks nice but I hope they used a yellowed case to do it. These days amiga's in mint condition are getting rare so I hate to see them visibly customized unless its to obscure a defect, or the custom pain really looks better then the original case.

The airbrushed one looks nice. Still prefer a normal looking keyboard for my Amiga, but if I had to do something in the case it started looking horrible I'd love to get that texture.

Hmm.. I find it... disgusting ;P
The soft airbrush dithers do not match the techno-square-hard-cutted look of an Amiga IMO.

If yer gonna paint it, paint it flat!
