Happy IBM PC Day!

August 12, 2011

 

The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a very happy IBM PC Day!  Whether you are a Mac or a PC, it is only right to pay your respects on the day that the first available IBM Personal Computer was announced to the world.

 

On this day in 1981, a very excited set of computer strategists announced the IBM Personal Computer to a press conference at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.  With a price tag of $1,565, the new IBM PC could process information faster than any earlier PCs and could connect to the home TV set, play games, and process text.  Thankfully, the cost of a personal computer has decreased a bit over the years!

 

 

 

Today, take time to appreciate your computer, its lightning-fast speed, and its (relatively) small price tag.  (If you don't, the computer may remember when Judgment Day rolls around on August 29th.  I'm just saying...)

 

Sincerely,
Barbra Dillon
