This video is an advertisement for what is supposedly IBM's first "portable" computer. At "about 50 pounds" that makes the IMB 5100 about as light as a box of 10 MacBooks.
But that's not all! "You can plug it in anywhere." Into a plug! It's almost as if this computer runs on normal electricity! Like any computer!
It can also handle "some very complex information" like calculating "size, weight, overhead, and don't forget the shipping costs." The people over at Linear Products Inc. can "handle 50% more work since we got the 5100." It's like having half an additional person per worker!
But obviously, times change and technology changes, so making fun of this ad is almost as silly as the ad itself — the ad I watched on my CELLULAR TELEPHONE!
