Popular Computing Circa 1983
I love collecting magazines and magazine ads, and I am a huge fan of Apple computer, so when a coworker told me he was tossing out a garage full of old computer magazines, I asked if I could have them. He thought it was a little strange that I would be interested in old computer magazines, but really, it's no stranger than having a garage full of old magazines is it!? He brought two large boxes of magazines to work the next day and I tucked them under my desk. That night, I got home and opened up my two boxes of treasures and was thrilled to find not only a bunch of great old computer ads for my collection, but some great magazine covers such as this March 1983 Popular Computing issue with the Apple Lisa on the cover!
