Item Description'Teaches everything in a fun-filled three-dimensional tour through the personal computer. Open the book and a friendly computer pops out of the page to guide you through the inner workings, from input to output. Watch what happens when you press down a key on the keyboard; go behind the screen and seee how a word gets written on the monitor. On your trip inside the computer, you'll visit disk drives, chips and printers and learn about everything from bits and bytes to RAM and ROM. Three-dimensional models, illustrations, charts and diagrmas show you how the computer thinks, remembers and communicates, all in terms that even the youngest computer user can understand...'

From the days in the 1980s when computers had floppy disks, and printers were dot matrix or daisy wheels. Great history lesson.
