10 Old Computer Ads – Is There Anything More Depressing?

10 Incredible Old Computer Ads (Images courtesy 2Spare)
By Andrew Liszewski

Looking at these old computer ads I don’t feel depressed in a “I can’t believe how old I am” kind of way. Not at all. The depressed feeling actually comes from the fact that we used to pay ‘under $20k’ for 300MB of storage. Well to be honest I never paid that much, since when that ad ran I wasn’t technically born yet, but I can remember paying $300 for a 128MB SD card not that long ago.

However, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Isaac Asimov could sell anything, and that Radio Shack ad with him and his favorite color computer only emphasizes that fact.
