Abstract
The advent of the LSI microprocessor and inexpensive memory introduces a new field in the computer industry - the field of personal computer applications and small scale computer systems. An entirely new group of manufacturers are marketing microcomputer related items, products that range from computer system kits with peripheral devices to software and literature on the subject. The wide ranging versatility of small scale microcomputer systems has caused a tremendous expansion from what was strictly a hobbyist computer market to growth areas in school educational markets and commercial applications. The costs, capabilities, problems encountered by personal computer enthusiasts, and the future implications of personal computers are investigated.
