The ELECOM 110 - The $62,500 General Purpose Digital Computer

The ELECOM 110 - A General Purpose Digital Computer
Scientific American September 1952

Not too shabby for $62K in 1952, this thing operates at .12Mhz has roughly 2K of memory and each tape holds around 360K.
Plus for all you case modders, it already comes with 200 glowing tubes. Try to beat that with your little LEDs. - Modern Mechanix.
