Default Historic PCs

The SWTPC 6800 was built by Southwest Technical Products. It cost $400 in kit form in 1976 and used a Motorola 6800 processor running at 1MHz.



At the Vintage Computer Festival, which played host to the Homebrew Computer Club's 30th anniversary, Chuck Colby shows a display of what he describes as the first IBM clone motherboard, which he introduced to Homebrew in 1982.



The IMSAI 8080, popular with computer hobbyists in the late 1970s, played a central role in the 1983 movie "WarGames."



The Compucolor II, introduced in 1977, featured a computer built into the chassis of a 13-inch television and is considered the first color personal computer. It used an Intel 8080A processor and accepted floppy disks through the door to the right of the screen.

In 1976 I was visiting University of Illinois and saw and watch Plato System in action .... bi-plane drawings.
