“640K ought to be enough for anybody”Bill Gates 1981

“The cost for 128 kilobytes of memory will fall below U$100 in the near future”Creative Computing magazine 1981

It’s always funny to read those old computer magazines, because nothing gets old faster than the technology news. Can you believe that the computer in your cell phone  already has more processing power than all the computers in the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander that put 2 men on the moon? Did you know that the first HDD introduced in 1979 by Seagate was only 5 MB and cost ~ $1500 USD?

These facts make us feel so good about our current gadgets, but our kids will laugh at our 2TB portable HDD disks or 8GB DDR3 Ram memory.  Here  are some very  cool vintage computer ads for  you – laugh while you can, because next time someone will be laughing at what you have right now.
