A snip at $35,600
« on: May 17, 2004, 14:28 »
If you've been hanging on to old fashioned ways because you thought a
computer was too expensive, think again. Our new Disk Operating System
brings the cost of computation and general purpose processing right
down to where your budget lives.
With our new DOS, you'll easily create, check out and run your own
programs. Because the assembly (or compilation), loading and execution
of your program are under the control of a teleprinter or batch input
device. [sic]
Anyone who can poke a typewriter key or pencil-mark a card can use our
DOS.
Our basic DOS includes an 8K computer with direct memory access, 2.4
million-character disc, one teleprinter and one high-speed paper tape
reader. Price is just $35,600. Or $765 per month on a five-year lease.

From a Hewlett Packard advert in September 1970
