Computers do not naturally make for compelling fictional characters. It's hard to convey a rich inner life with dialogue like "20 GOTO 10". Nevertheless, in honor of our PC-crazy Computer Takeover at Sellout.Woot, we've assembled a networked array of fictional computers from screens both big and small. How much of this hardware can you name?

Answers are here. Please post your guesses, speculations, or arguments below! But know this: the Trivial Eye is presented for public amusement and no prizes are offered other than that familiar feeling of aggravation that so much of your mind is occupied by useless trivia.
