Synopsis

Launched in 1982 by three friends in a Houston diner, Compaq Computer set out to build a portable PC to take on IBM, the world's most powerful tech company. Although many others had tried cloning IBM's prized code, only to be trounced by high-priced lawyers, Compaq's vision for a portable PC found startling success, sending shockwaves through the industry and dethroning a tech giant. SILICON COWBOYS charts the unexpected rise (and eventual fall) of Compaq during the booming 1980s PC industry, offering a refreshing and important addition to the familiar narratives of Jobs, Gates, and Zuckerberg.
