Caption: Early computer. Console of an IBM 360/195 computer from 1971. This console was mainly used to give information on the operation of the machine. The console gave a summary of how the computer was performing and what types of jobs were running on it; it was also used to diagnose faults when the machine broke down. The IBM 360/195 could process 10-15 million instructions per second (MIPs) and had a storage memory of 2 megabytes. The computer was installed at the Atlas Computer Laboratory (part of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory), Britain, at a cost of #2.5 million (1971 price). It was mainly used for particle physics research.
