In the 386 issue of PC Magazine, May 30, 1989, there is a two page spread
(p98&99) called "Another Kind of Memory." It is a timeline from 1890 to 1990
of historical milestones on the path to computerdom. Of special interest to
this group they list the Kenbak PC, 1971 as the first personal computer. The
Xerox Alto was the first workstation with a mouse, 1972. Mits Altair featured
on cover of Popular Electronics, July 1975.

They make no claims that the Altair was the first personal computer, only that
it was on the cover of a popular magazine.

Does anyone out there have a KenbaK PC?
