Well, speaking for myself, an overly-plain <something> is something I
notice.  An overly-gaudy <something> gets really annoying.  It's not just
computers; I couldn't easily care less about fashion, or whether my
clothes "go together", or any of that stuff (obviously ;), but I'm still
not going to wear a bright neon pink plastic shirt with blinking-lighted
yellow pants.

Overly plain may be ugly, but overly gaudy is distracting verging on
annoying.
