TOPIC: Computer History - August, 1965
Digital Equipment Corporation unveils the PDP-8 computer in 1965. The first commercially successful minicomputer is small enough to sit on a desktop and sells for $18,000. The combination of speed, size, and cost puts the PDP-8 in thousands of manufacturing plants, offices, and scientific laboratories. By late 1973, the PDP-8 family is the best selling computer in the world.
