WHY WERE OLDSCHOOL PC CASES BEIGE IN COLOUR?
If you're a Millennial then you will probably remember older PCs from that era such as those from Windows 95, 98 and even early versions from Windows 2000 and Windows XP. If you're even older then you will probably remember early home computers from IBM and even the original Apple Macintosh.
But what did all these computers have in common? Well, their cases and even monitors were usually made in a beige colour, but why is this exactly?
Well, the honest truth is that no one knows for sure, but historians believe that they decided on this specific light beige colour as other office equipment at the time was in a similar shade of beige so they would fit in more aesthetically.
But like fashion, trends come and go, and thank goodness for that! Over the years we have seen black cases becoming the norm, then a light silver, and nowadays you can get a PC case in pretty much any colour, material and configuration that takes your fancy!
