Antique Computer is a custom set made by Lavertus in March 2017.


The set is based off an IBM 1401 computer released in 1959 however it is not an exact replica of any Computer; it is meant to symbolise what Computers were like in the 1960s. The set is made up of several small builds. The minifigure is a generic Computer operator. The set consists of him, a card punching machine (computers of the day relied on punch cards for data), the main CPU unit and two reel to reel tape drives.

As with all of the history sets, the set comes with not only the builds, but information. A booklet contains information about Computing such as the general capabilities and the most common machines.
