and of course I re-read this and realize they meant also changing a webcam or keyboard to be malicious. Man I shouldn't post before my morning coffee.
Let them try reprogramming a Model M keyboard. There is one perk to legacy PS/2 ports, they are secure!

It took a while for the right machine to come up for sale, but it was worth it. I have been wanting a Video Toaster setup for a good 15 years at that point! One thing potential buyers should be mindful of, get the machine with a mouse and keyboard! Both sell for quite a bit more than the average PS/2 equivalent and the adapters to use USB or PS/2 devices aren't much cheaper.
The A3000 came another ~2 years later -- was a little late to the party -- and delivered in a number of areas, but perhaps tellingly, many professionals would stick with the A2000 + 68030 accelerator boards. Accelerators from the leading company GVP were stable and much faster than initial A3000s, beyond which many video/CGI orientated cards would not initially fit in the A3000. That people moved the A3000 hardware to third-party cases is perhaps saying a lot about expandibility vs sexy cases.
Newtek didn't seem to ship any turnkey Toaster workstations based on the Amiga 3000. They kept building systems based on A2500 machines until the Toaster 4000 card was released. The lack of slots in the 3000 was a problem, since they were usually crammed full of TBC cards. There was nothing great about the A3000 case, but it was way nicer than the joke of a case that the Amiga 4000 desktop came in. Taking that thing apart is.... ugh.
Having the ability to ride the nations' only electric interstate train all the way from South Bend, Indiana to Millennium Station in the heart of downtown Chicago for $22 round trip - I can't wait for the museum to open!
There are other electric interstate trains in the US.
