How personal computers were advertised in the 1990s

Superb series of pictures by Ilya Pestov showing advertisement for computers. Today’s generation would barely believe these ads:

oday, hard drives are boring. You can buy a terabyte hard drive for $50. But back in the day, people would get excited when they saw ads announcing even 10 megabyte hard drives.

To prove it, I’ve unearthed some retro computer ads that give you a first-hand look into how computers were advertised before the modern age of smartphones, ultrabooks, and smart watches.

You’ll never be able to look at your gadgets the same way again.
