Nine awesome computer ads from the 70s and 80s
There are lots of vintage ad collections out there, and it’s always a fun to look through them. For your viewing pleasure, we have handpicked nine of the most fun, creative or just plain weird computer ads we have ever seen.
Below you will find classic ads from Apple, Texas Instruments, IBM, BASF, Honeywell, Maxell and more.
Two hot bytes
Apple getting witty about their name
A maybe even sexy 1200 bps modem
Back when Bill Cosby was all the rage
A dragon with a chip on its shoulder
The indestructible 3.5-inch floppy (most optimistic ad ever?)
In the future, everyone will use floppy disks
IBM PC, only $2,108 for the 64KB model
But computers were best in the 60s. Really. It tells fortunes!
We hope you enjoyed this little collection!
