That brings back some memories. Finally got rid of my last CRT last weekend in a garage sale. Hell I only got an LCD that had decent black levels in the past two years anyways.

I found an old Computer magazine behind some basement furniture as I was cleaning up from earlier... it was a real computer-price time machine.

Man, I remember when my parent's 486DX 33MHz w/ 8MB Ram + 15" CRT was over $3,000 USD. Puny hard drive, no sound card, no game card, or anything else flashy. I think it was a Zeos brand PC.

Prior to that, we had a Commodore 128 for years. 1-2 years after we got the 486, my mom's place sold her one of their old 386's for peanuts. So I could do my homework while she was dialed into work via the modem.

But man, those prices vs specs. Now you can get a cheap PC w/ hundreds or thousands of times the specs for under a grand.
