First issue of On Computing Magazine

On Computing was another early general purpose computer magazine.

This is the only issue of this publication I own or have ever seen.

I have the premier issue (Vol 1, No. 1 --Nov. 1981)of Popular Computing published by McGraw- Hill. It was previously published as onComputing.

Like you, this is the only issue I've seen. Too bad, too. I thought it had promise.

Erik: I have all four Volume 1 issues and can send you cover scans if you're interested.

I have Vol 2 No 3 (Winter 1980). Somehow, this one survived through all the years. I believe it changed to Personal Computing after the second year and went from quarterly to every two months.
