Micronix Advert - June 1983
From Practical Computing
"Introducing the Micronix 80HD - a complete microcomputer on a single board"
Single board computers are still quite popular, especially with hobbyists as they're often small and have low power requirements. The fun with this advert is that whilst a modern single board computer might be more-or-less one chip with a few other components and be no larger than a pack of cards, this one from Micronix had just a few more chips on it and was not far short of the size of a piece of A3 paper (to be fair it was aimed at the system-builder market rather than home builders). A 64K model retailed for £445, or about £1,500 in 2011 money
