Retro Scan of the Week: “Presenting The IBM of Personal Computers”

February 6th, 2006 by Benj Edwards
Presenting the IBM of Personal Computers.

A vintage IBM PC Ad from Time Magazine (October 26th, 1981). I am always surprised at how much verbiage magazine advertisements used to contain. If you look back in magazines from the 1960s to the early 80s, most of the ads have lots of text, expecting you to stop and read all their sales jive. Now I guess people are too impatient, so if an ad doesn’t poke us in the eye immediately, we pass it over. Words make Grog head hurt!
