Crazy, crazy prices!

I’ve been going through the filing cabinet and throwing out old receipts and records.

The first PC: with a Pentium 120 processor and 8 MB of RAM, with a 1 GB hard drive cost $2800, back in 1996.

In 1998 I bought a few upgrades: 32 MB of RAM cost $152, and a 4.3 GB hard drive was $360.

Nobody can complain about modern prices when you look back.

I love how the prices have come down. Two years ago I bought two laptops for not much more than I paid for my original desktop. (One for me, one for my daughter. She paid me back too, bonus!)
