Power Computing 1997 Fight Tyranny Macworld poster

This is a super rare Power Computing poster from the 1997 San Francisco Macworld. The text is "The Fight Against Tyranny Begins! Join the Mac Resistance!" This Apple clone poster was designed by punk rock poster artist Frank Kozik who did a series of them for PowerComputing in the mid '90's until Steve Jobs returned to Apple and ended the clone program later that year.

At the January 1997 Macworld Expo, Power Computing fired up the Mac faithful with its “Fight Back for the Mac!” campaign, complete with company reps dressed in camouflage uniforms circling the Expo hall in Hummers emblazoned with Power Computing logos.

This poster was collected at the January Moscone Center Macworld Expo and the original owner had this to say: "The Power Computing booth was out of this poster by the time I got there, but a peripheral manufacturing company (whose name escapes me) was displaying this - hence the staple holes. Anyway they said I could have it if I came back at the end of the day. So I did! As mentioned, this does have some holes where it was stapled to a display board." It measures approx. 23" by 32" and the staple holes in top and bottom white space should cover when framed.

This highly collectible and nearly impossible to find vintage poster is priced at $350 and that includes insured postage in a heavy cardboard tube. There are other vintage and rare posters and shirts from the Power Computing era available - click the labels below. To inquire contact Dave via

Power Computing Ad Campaigns "Power Computing never did back down from a good fight. The edgy ads led by Marketing Weasel Mike Rosenfelt got plenty of attention and sold a ton of computers."
