    Those prices are in $ though, I paid £1000 for my first computer in 1996 from PC World, A PowerMac which had a 2GB Hard Drive and a 180Mhz Processer, was a bargain at the time too as had just been reduced from £1200

    my first computer was commadore 64 ... I used to copy games god them was the days lol

    My first real computer was the Mac, but before that I bought a Spectrum 48k in 1983, the kids of today don't know they are born each time we wanted to play a game we had to load from cassettes for 5 minutes and in that time wondering if it would load or not!

    God,how i remember those days,hours wasted just trying to get games to load.
    Off the subject of computers but related to prices,i am drawn to the first DVD recorder i bought in 1978,a betamax that cost £500,which in 1978 was an absolute fortune.Bought an Atari gaming machine when they came out,think it was about £100.It was ace.

    Also I remember getting a Commodore Amiga in my mid teens and was really chuffed when it came with .5mb of ram. Those were the days.
