Vintage Computer Ads from the 1960′s

1960s computer ad 7

There’s nothing that shows the progress of technology than vintage computer ads. We’ve showed you ads form the 1940s and 1950s, today, we’re going to look at the 1960s.

One thing I noticed about these ads in comparison to the 40s and 50s, is the ads from the 60s seem more familiar. Meaning, they seem more like computers.

Some of these will surprise you, while others will just make you laugh.

And we’re still talking about reducing paper use (printing emails).

That’s a desk sized computer?

Compare this to a Mac Air without figuring inflation!
