dkp Posted November 6, 2007 Share Posted November 6, 2007 Our first home computer was a Commodore Pet 16k. What a hunk of steel that was! Monitor connected to the top of the computer. Dad paid $750 or so and that was probably 1980/1981. I bought my first PC in 1990/1991 for about $1500. 386Sx20; 2 megs of ram and probably VGA graphics along with a dot matrix printer to boot. I added another two megs of ram about a year later for $85. Contrast that to the 500gig EHDD I just picked up for $120. Amazing. -David Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
