Back in the day, computers were giant, expensive boxes that catered to a very small market. Seeing them in offices didn’t become common place until maybe the mid to late 80s. And home use didn’t take off until the early 90s. But they were around long before then, trying to grab the attention of this small pre-Internet audience the only way they could back then: through magazine ads.
Everyone was trying to get a piece of that small market, showing the world that they were ones to go with for all your computer needs. Their machine was the fastest, the cheapest, and the SEXIEST!
That’s right. Some marketing wiz realized that slapping on some sex appeal seems to make people want to whip out their wallets and drop some of that hard earned cash on hardware that would make them so incredibly hot to the opposite sex.
Because NOTHING screams “Take me to bed with you” like a 4800 BPS Penril Modem.
