TCW Podcast Episode 172 - The Computer Price Wars part 1
Part one of our live recording as we cover the Computer Price Wars. We focus on the development of the PC market. The state of computers in the home. The hobbyist computer market, and the major players involved. We see the rapid development of computers and the shift to pre-assembled PCs. We wrap up by looking at the major players of the late 70s and early 80s. The build-up to a price war that would eventually devastate the entire industry.
