The 9100A

Woo hoo! Self is loving this book. She’s still on Chapter One.

The first desktop computer was HP’s 9100A. It was nothing but “a glorified calculator” and “It was huge, maybe forty pounds.”

Can you imagine a computer weighing 40 pounds? Self wants to scream. Even her first MacBook Air was just eight pounds.

The best laptops are Apple, but the the best printers are HP. She bought her first HP laser printer from Fry’s Electronics in Palo Alto, which has since gone out of business, alas! Those laser printers can go on forever, they NEVER break down. Self used them to print page after page of her fantastic stories. Nowadays they print, they fax, they scan, they send and receive email. One printer is in the garage (it still works) and two are in her office. She is definitely an Apple and Hewlett Packard girl.

Wowee, what else is she going to learn from this book, she’s only on p. 17.
