  • Why I Bought A New ‘Old MacBook’ Pro

    It’s been quite some time that I have been wishing to buy a MacBook Pro, and I eagerly waited for the October 14 refresh of Apple’s top of the line notebooks.  As expected, the refresh happened on the scheduled date and Mr. Jobs, this time (for a change) along with few of his colleagues wowed us all once again with his expert presentation skills, launching a whole new product redesign.

    So if everything went right then what’s up with this freaking title?

    A Report On Three Classic Personal Computers

    While browsing through some old backups yesterday, I found an illustrated report titled ‘A Report on Three Classic Personal Computers‘ which I had submitted under my “Small Computer Systems: Organization and Architecture” subject.

    If you are curious about the ancestors of the machine you are reading this post on, then this report really makes an interesting read. The content requirement for the report was as under:

    The classic systems must have been made within the years 1972 to 1990 and be non-IBM-PC compatible (i.e. not running MS-DOS). The systems must also be predominantly consumer products, not systems that were intended for use as dedicated computers for the military or business or terminals that connected to mainframes.

    Structure of the Report:

    • Summary
    • Table of Contents
    • Introduction
    • Main Body
    • Conclusion
    • References
