Computer history display at COMDEX 1996

In 1996 COMDEX Las Vegas presented a display of artifacts commemorating the 25th anniversary of Intel and the microprocessor.  Since this was the 25th anniversary for Intel, trivia contests and timeline displays were abundant. Seen here are photographs of the displays in the tent outside the Las Vegas Convention Center. The photos are not as clear as I would have liked. The displays were behind glass so a flash wouldn’t work and the displays were poorly lit. This required long exposure times while hand holding the camera. Just click on an image to see larger version.
