Video: IBM 5100 First Portable Computer commercial 1977

Well it has been a while since I posted to this blog, so I thought that this classic commercial from MrClassicAds would be a great way for me to get the ball rolling again:

I love the line "It weighs about 50 pounds". Now that's a portable, or at least that was the standard back when I graduated from high school.

Feel free to comment and if you have any suggestions for links drop me a line, and if you are on you are welcome to join the 8-BIT RETRO COMPUTING Group.
