Why are they always pictured with the aerials up, and not down like legs?
At least they would get better air flow around them that way.

I always loved the very low resolution textures on the SG replicators. Just look at those "circles" like components. 1996 is calling! :)))))

I actually like the design. I approve of many quirky design ideas. Hopefully its wifi is better than on my 2890al!
