I had a IBM PS/2 from a few years later that had a similar looking switch in the front of the machine. It did a distinct 'POIINNG' along with the switching because it was basically a lever actuating on a long metal rod attached to the real switch on the PSU at the back of the machine :-)
@thomasfuchs i have equal respect for the satisfying TAK of y'old and the subtle *clicky* of today's boxes.
@thomasfuchs I'm gonna need to salvage one of these old thins for my print cleaner, the tactile feedback is even better than the sound <3
@thomasfuchs Hear it? No. But I sure have used that switch a lot of times. It's a switch on the original IBM PC, no? But wasn't the same switch used on other machines around the same time?
@thomasfuchs SGI Power Supplies produce a distinct starting sound, but this?
The fan may be noisy, but the disk drives will usually drown the fan.
That time far in the past when things were built like tanks to last, and gave a satisfying feeling when operated.
Also, recessed so you don't flip it by accident. Well thought out.
