This is just information. I completed a reference tool that accomplishes
most of this for computers built between 1950 and 1979. It's called Domestic
Commercial Computing Power Between 1950 & 1979 (DCCP). It doesn't include
statistical data, but it does list every make and model of computers built
or sold by North American computer companies. It was self-published, but
you'll find reviews in upcoming issues of the Annals, Analytical Engine,
and the CBI newsletter. It's not available on the web and I have no plans
for that, but I am trying to make a CD version that would include
photographs, commercials/promotional video clips, sales literature, etc.

We could use a similar tool for the years 1980 onwards for commercially
available computers, but also for military computers, industrial control
computers, programmable communication controllers, etc.

Yours in good faith.
