Ferranti Mercury 4 of 26
Leaflet cover. The Ferranti Mercury was the most powerful scientific computer of its day.
One was installed (outstripping the two English Electric Deuces in the next room) at R.A.E. Farnborough.
It had 1k of fast memory backed up by magnetic drums with an 8 millisec access time.
