Remember when computers looked like this?

Check out this 1991 ad for an Irish computer firm.

TWO FLOPPY DISK drives? This, my friend, is a high-powered machine.

Also, can we take a minute for the fact that it has a ‘Turbo’ button?

We’re not sure whether the smashing of champagne bottles is really a good idea. Maybe it was part of basic maintenance back then.

It’s a vintage ad from the Trinity 400 book published in 1991 to mark four centuries of Trinity College. Dug out by Brand New Retro.

“Composed using CorelDraw 2 and Windows 3″. Windows 3!
