Corrin and I dropped some stuff off at Goodwill the other day, and when we were looking around inside I made an amazing find. For only two dollars, I purchased a pop-up book describing the internals of a 1980’s PC! I’ve uploaded pictures of most of the book. I left out a few of the more boring features, such as opening a floppy disk to see the mylar disc inside.

  1. I grew up with that book!!

  2. Me too! I think my Mum still has it. Along with my Tron popup book.

  3. Wow! What a blast from the past- my wife bought that book when we were living in England in the 80s, and she _still_ pulls it out to play with it now…
