Computer Ads have come a long way

Oldpc 20I came across this post from Top Design Magazine. While it came out in January, it's still timeless.

Talk about a trip down memory lane! I remember just about all of these computers, which were pretty darn cool at the time. Of course, now they look downright ancient.

My favourite part of them is looking at just how expensive storage used to be. Take a look at the image on the right - a 10 MB drive for $3,495 - and that's for a factory rebuilt!

If you're of a certain age, you'll enjoy this stroll through history. And if you're not - well, you'll still find this interesting, if a little puzzling.

Oh - one more thing. Check out the new ad for Macintosh. You can see just how different Apple was from the competition right from the beginning. They've always had a lot of style and their advertising has always looked good.
