The Symptom: When their computers break down,
Computer Nerds break out. Unsightly blemishes sprout
in anxiety over fleeting warranties, inept mainte-
nance, and a callous disregard for quality and
dependability. Because this festering nervous
disorder is so upsetting, Com-
puter Nerds often consume

peroxide before plug-

all day reading nothing but documentation materials
written in (gasp) "Computerese!" Computer Nerds
actually enjoy wasting time trying to decipher all that

Computer Nerds always wear those
thick horn-rimmed glasses made
popular by Jerry Lewis in The

e Cure: The Zenith Z-100 PC's


The Symptom: Computer Nerds expand their horizons by expanding their
computers. But they fail to realize that their already enormous systems
lack enough internal expandability. So, as they tack on one peripheral
after the other, they soon find themselves being expanded out of house
and home. Such terrifying experiences eventually lead to an irrational
fear of closed-in places.
The Cure: Hardware expansion should never invade your space. That's
why Zenith gives you plenty of room to grow... inside where it counts.
The Zenith Z-100 PC's give you internal expandability that lets you add
eripherals without adding size. And they're more compact than the
IBM PC. So, cast your fear of expansion aside. We would never dream
of crowding you!
