I remember being in awe of this when it arrived in our school, around 1988. It really was something from the future because the ability to use a computer to wizz around maps and pull up photos and text didn't really catch on for another 10 years or so.

It's funny, and also annoying, that most of the photos are of old things that haven't really changed at all.
