Pics from the past...
I found a couple of pics from WAAAAAY back computing...
Notice the Return of the Jedi glasses from Macdonalds. That dates this picture to about 1983
"I see dead pixels...."
How I used to roll:
Let's not forget the ads:
Notice the 280x192 graphics capabilities, and the WHOPPING 48k of RAM....that's Kilobytes you all you youngsters....the upgrade to 64K cost over $100!!! In 1979 dollars!!!
Oh, and that dot graphic on the last ad took OVER NIGHT for an Apple II to plot!!!!
LOL. The second one has a laptop sitting on the desk and a wireless router behind the PET.
Apple II first system I ever used.
those apple II are the first pc I build, ( clone one actually ) , I will try to find old pick of My tandy I with 8" floppy. I see some tape also, I don't miss those commodore 64 with the software on record tape. I still rember to have purchasse a JVC VHS, to back up my firts IBM XT with a huge 5 mb HD ( $ 5800 that build , not including the $ 1295 for the vhs ) ) , I will not about the compaq portable with the keyboard in the cover suposely 95 % compatible , what a crap ...... it"s where I lear to copy the ibm rom to make it compatible at 100 % I still have trace of my alergy to compaq. I should have keep those pc ,
My first PC was an 8088, which I paid something like $2700+ for and my internet connection was through a 300 baud modem. Pick up the telephone handset, reverse it and insert it into the modems receptacle and wait for your connection. :haha:
That PET computer sure brings back memories, we used to learn programming on them is school. How things change.
monitor and mouse NOT included.. lmao
Tandy 5000, :bleh:. That's 90's tech. My 1st computer was a TRS-80.
Note the cassette for mass storage. Although mine had the expansion interface and 8" Floppy disk too, which I think held about 120KB. The processor was a Z80. I think Dad paid around $2000 for it. 10 years later, I used a Z80 based "MicroProf" in labs at BCIT, which I think I paid about $150 for.
