From the article:

The machine almost never happened as when it was first mooted that IBM was going to build a PC, a senior executive reportedly asked the simple question: “Why would anyone want to take a computer home with them?”

But IBM at the time was struggling financially, and its leadership had not failed to notice that many of its competitors were already selling minicomputers, as well as micro computers from the likes of Commodore, Atari, Tandy and Apple.

Here's an image of a white full case Radio Shack Color Computer that I recently rediscovered in my storage closet.

Note that this is a full case system, and not a half case like the Color Computer 2 or 3.

So, they can network a bunch of 8 bit machines to play music, which is very cool, but this got me thinking.
If one could have used this technology back in the day, could they have made a beowulf type cluster and competed with the era's super computers?
