The Advantages of Owning an IBM PCjr? The Ladies…

In this ad from the mid-eighties we see a very Jason Bateman-esque looking kid extolling the virtues of the IBM PCjr not just for its computing power, but because of its power to attract the ladies. You know because “sometimes it’s easy to forget, but there’s more to life than just computing.”

Personally I am still not 100% sold on that.

    My PCjr did indeed attract a female, but sadly it was my sister. We used to argue over who got to use it. Definitely not the romantic benefits that IBM promised.
