Wow! It's from 1971! This is a rare find that will change the history of
microcomputers as we know it.

I don't know, maybe it's because it is my business to know dates and
timelines with regards to computer history, but why do people tend to
think their old computers are older than they actually are?

I always run into people who say something like "Oh yeah, I have a TRS-80
from 1974!"
