HOBBY PERSONAL COMPUTER CATALOGUE OF YESTERYEAR

G-WALK



 

Before the dominance of Windows and Mac in the market, which we see today, there was a time before the 1990s when personal computing was quite different. Personal computers were not the easily accessible commodity products they are today. Both hardware and software were primitive, and manufacturers and users alike were exploring the possibilities of computer utilization in a trial-and-error manner.


As a result, computer specifications varied greatly among manufacturers, and there was no compatibility between them, creating a chaotic era. Looking back, it may not have been particularly "convenient," but at the time, personal computers were seen as "boxes of dreams" where anything was possible through ingenuity. Young computer enthusiasts of that era felt the infinite potential of these computers.


This book focuses on Japanese proprietary architecture personal computers from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, capturing the unique and diverse products that each manufacturer experimented with to distinguish themselves. Through this book, those who were young computer enthusiasts at the time will feel nostalgia, while newcomers will experience a fresh glimpse into that era.


This volume, significantly reconstructed from Hiroshi Maeda's previously published "Nostalgic Hobby Personal Computer Guidebook," is presented in a large format, filled with photographs of personal computers.
