10 Retro Old PC Advertisements

Old PC Advertisement 10

Check out these retro old PC advertisements. Can you remember your first PC? I can. I remember the day I received my first Spectrum +2 as a child in the 80’s, playing Oh Mummy and many other “cutting edge” games! My favourite ad is the Arari one above. You can see the joysticks featured, plus many more in Top 10 Joysticks from past and present. Here are the rest of the adverts:
