July:
There are more than 50 sales and services offices in 11 countries all over the world.

August:
The PDP-8/I is DIGITAL's third 12-bit computer system and the first to be implemented with integrated circuits.

The PDP-8/I was more expandable (and expensive) than the PDP-8/S. Introduced at the same time was the PDP-8/L, a smaller OEM version of the 8/I. (The PDP-8/I is pictured.)

EDUsystems are introduced.

PDP-8 based EDUsystems, using the BASIC language developed at Dartmouth College, brought computers into elementary and secondary schools. EDUsystems were designed to start small and expand as the school's computing requirements increased.

The TYPESET-8, the pioneer of the "turnkey" computer system, is introduced.

The TYPESET-8 hardware and software package originally sold with the classic PDP-8 as its CPU and functioned as a computerized typesetting system for use in hot metal and photo composition typesetting.
