SoftEgg Hobby Computer

Wouldn't it be great if we had useless hobby computers like we had in the 80's, that were only good for games and puttering?

I've been sick, and so NanoEgg work that requires thinking just makes me more ill. In my feverish delusions, I thought "wouldn't it be great if we had useless hobby computers like we had in the 80's, that were only good for games and puttering?" And so I somehow cobbled together this 3d model between coughing fits and blowing my nose.
I mentioned the "hobby computer" to other people and they seemed to think it was a terrible waste of time, that nobody would want to program a computer that they couldn't sell anything on, that anything without a proper OS and internet access and 3d and polygons and web shops and ad revenue was worthless.
Does anybody else harbor a secret desire to have a tiny computer that is only good for writing silly little games and demos, where you can hold the whole state of the machine in your head, and there is no real profit motive whatsoever?

Enjoy this project?

as a whipper snapper too young to have experienced homebrew computing in the 70s/80s I like the idea of this project! My first PC was a Mac Performa 6100 so I'm pretty spoiled as far as computers go my whole life lol
