Humor Last month we discussed how computers are portrayed in cultural icons like Lost in Space, Star Trek, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, and -- of course! -- that lost gem, The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes. This article continues this essential exploration of American culture with more probing profiles of computers on TV and in the movies.

If I recall correctly, they used an IMSAI because it is something that he could have gotten surplus. After all, computers like the Apple II were extremely expensive back then. Especially when you throw in upgrades like floppy drives, an 80 column card, a speech synthesizer, and (of course) a modem.
