1960s computer ads


“Burroughs B-220 Computer

This was a vacuum-tube computer with 10,000 44-bit words of core, each containing 10 decimal digits. Core memory was a new technology, replacing drum memory with magnetic cores. This was called Random-Access Memory (RAM) because you could access any word of memory in the same time as any other word.”

And don’t forget the Burroughs B-205!
