Birth year computers....

Hmmm. Well, I guess I'll have to look up the info on the
IBM 650...
Larger than a breadbox? (heh... :-)
A desk? (must be, the 1130 I used was large desk sized
              but twice as tall...)
A house? (more like it, I'm sure...)

But wait! enter IBM 650 and the first link is great:

Heck, I could fit one in my garage -- it couldn't weigh more than
a few tons... Just need room for the O26 keypunch... And have
a larger electrical service put in... I'm sure someone has one in
their back yard that they would want to get rid of...
