Mini Skirt Monday #25: Even More Miniskirts 'n' Computers

I love discovering old promotional material from tech industries. There's something about the groovy color schemes mixed with odd looking electronics that really does my heart good.  One thing these dusty brochures and flyers were never shy to do was stick a pretty girl (often in a miniskirt) somewhere in the photo.  I don't care if it's a 1976 Data General microprocessor or a 1965 TTL Quad Gate, there's going to be a pretty baby somewhere in that brochure, guaranteed.

The combination of shag carpet, matching Harvest Yellow equipment, mini skirt, and antiquated technology is a magical combination.  My Chicks 'n' Computers Flickr set gets a lot of traffic, for good reason. Here's a sampling of some of my images. Enjoy!

Note: If you want to view some of these in their original size, it may probably be best just to go to the Flickr set. Some of these will open in a new window/tab but will not enlarge when you click on them. Don't ask me why - the answer will only bore you.




Note: Mini-Skirt Monday #8 and Mini-Skirt Monday #20 also featured chicks 'n' computers.


  1. It's pictures like this that meant when I was growing up in the 80s, I yearned for the good old days of the 60s and 70s when I could find work at a place that had an HP9701 Distributed System.

    Those things, my young mind reasoned, were magnets for hot chicks in miniskirts.

  2. Back in the day, you had to use a little porn to sell your Frigidaire-sized computer because there's nothing sexy about a machine that gets your quarterly financials done.

    Nowadays, the industry doesn't need to use sex as a selling hook because it's a foregone conclusion that you're buying a computer solely for porn.
