    I like the way the whole advert seems to be about trying to justify the cost. £1300 in todays money according to the Bank of England
    inflation calculator.

    Great post!

    It's amazing to see how fast "BIG" memory fades away for much larger capacities and become super cheap to boot. Hell it's becoming difficult to find a computer sold with a cd/DVD ROM nowadays because of their memory.

    Never heard of that Apple company though. Did they go on to something successful or?:wink:

    I put a link to more old computer stuff here which was when I found the article above

    A funny thought. If you measured $/lb (or Euros/Kg) for disk drives then the ratio might stay more or less constant.
    People joked about old drives turning into doorstops but even a Modern SSD has hardly any weight at all.
