If you see the thing it says new for 89. I'm guessing that was 1989 or 1889? It looks like a real advertisement.

lol...you've got to laugh at that... Is that really how bad computers were? haha.

Then again though, with the programs it had to run, 20mhz was probably enough.

Chances are that was the equivalent of your hardcore 1337 modded gaming rigs of today.

Every computer user's dream!

The first hard drive was invented in 1955...so it must be 1989 not 1889 ...
