A computer system; always used with qualifiers.
1. "nice toy": One that supports the speaker's hacking style
2. "just a toy": A machine that yields insufficient
computrons for the speaker's preferred uses. This is not
condemnatory, as is bitty box; toys can at least be fun. It
is also strongly conditioned by one's expectations; Cray XMP
users sometimes consider the Cray-1 a "toy", and certainly all
RISC boxes and mainframes are toys by their standards. See
