NewBrain in Angola

The Central Planning of Angolan Ministry of Commerce in Angola between the years 1981 to 1984 used a NewBrain Computer.It was strange that a small NewBrain with two cheap cassettes and one MX100 EPSON printer managed to recalculate all of the central plans of the Ministry of Commerce in less than 4 hours, while one IBM 370 mainframe computer costing millions could not perform the same operation in  less than 2 months, as things like "re-programming", "punching cards", "lots of energy", "High class analysts and engineers" were necessary. Central Planning of the Angolan Ministry of Commerce in Angola between the years 1981 to 1984 used the NewBrain Computer.
