Unkown to most, the nyriad was , at Marconi Research fitted with a 10 MB HDD which stood al of about 1 M high (remember the size of current HDD's) which was used on an in-house sysyem at the Marconi Research site at Gt. Baddow in the 60's early 70's. We also had, at one time (25 years ago) a complete set of the design manuals for Apollo as most of the circuits were built here. Unfortunately, as far as I know they were skipped in the late 80's. (talk) 21:19, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

"The Myriad 1 computer was mounted in a small desk format, and was far smaller than any comparable machine at the time"

There were a wide variety of desk-type computers in the 1960s. The only date mentioned is 1964, at which time there were systems like the LINC and Ferranti Sirius on the market.
