Fortune designed the Unix-based 32:16 to be used as either a multi- or single-user system. It was network ready and offered many upgrade options. The stylish white enclosure, keyboard, and monitor were a welcome departure from the boxy utilitarian look that many of the 32:16’s competitors displayed.
