ABSTRACT
<p>In response to the increasing popularity in the late 1970s of affordable, general-purpose, microprocessor-based personal computers in the US, several countries attempted to create indigenous personal computer industries. The Turing-850, a general-purpose PC designed and built in Mexico in the early 1980s, shows that Mexico had the technological capabilities to develop its own such industry, but diverse factors prevented its creation.</p>
