After watching Silicone Cowboys on Netflix a few weeks ago, I had not realized the recent "comeback" of Compaq history. So I also bought this book as Compaq was part of my life and success back in the 80's and 90's. Very good read though obviously not complete.
I was one of the original investors in Compaq through Ben Rosen's firm. My first Compaq was the Deskpro 286e and my "Compaq Museum" computer room also holds the Deskpro 66M, Deskpro XL 6200, MiniTower Deskpro 6333 and Deskpro EN 6800, all still running like clockwork and all in like new condition. I have all the original boxes, service manuals, advertising, spare parts galore etc. There was nothing like seeing a Compaq Ad sign back then in the odd and remote of airports like Botswana, Tahiti etc. on my travels. I bailed out of Compaq in early 1997 when I got wind of the DEC acquisition which started their final downfall. Been a Dell boy (Dimension 4600 & 4700, Latitude D610 and XPS 630i's) since then.
