New history of computing book:

Z. Stachniak, "Inventing the PC: the MCM/70 Story", McGill-Queen's  
University Press, 2011, http://mqup.mcgill.ca/book.php?bookid=2643

The book details the invention and design of the MCM/70 micro,  
possibly the world's earliest computer dedicated specifically for  
personal use. The
MCM/70 was designed and manufactured by a Toronto-based electronics  
company Micro Computer Machines in the early 1970s. The first  
prototype of the MCM/70 was publicly demonstrated in May of 1973.  
Providing comprehensive historical background and rich photographic  
documentation, "Inventing the PC" offers an insider's view of events  
on the front lines of pioneering work on personal computers.
