An IBM 650 computer (or "electronic brain") was installed in three parts in the University of Arizona Engineering Experiment Station in 1957 to solve research problems submitted by the UA, as well as government and private businesses. It could make 138,000 logical decisions a minute. An Intel Core i7 processor in an Apple laptop can complete 317,900 MIPS (millions of instructions per second). 

As for the woman modeling with the computer, well that's anybody's guess. There was no information with the photo negatives in the archives.
