10 Computer Ads From The 80s

We know we have been a little quiet for a while here on TechyShit but we knew you guys liked looking at the godaddy girls. Out of the three that you see on that post, I think Candice is pretty hot. Sorry, didn’t mean to sway away from the post, but damn it she always seems to get my attention. That’s the reason why we didn’t update cause we were busy looking at Ms. Candy..err…Candice.

Anyway, as you can see from the title today’s post is on 10 old vintage ads that represented some of the famous computers in the 80s. I was around to see some of them but not all. Let us know what you think and which ads you remember. All images are linked directly to the source.

There it is. Let us know which ads you remember seeing. I for one remember the Macintosh ad not cause i was old enough but cause my old man had it on one of his magazines. Good ol’ days. What about you? Remember any of these or are you too young to even know these computers existed back in the days? ;-)
