    And some software.

    Things certainly have moved on, & Massively down in $ :)

    The only item on sale @ the time that wouldn't look outa place, is the Apple laser printer. Not the price though :eek:

    The flat panel screen was far sighted :thumb:

    Thanks for the link.

    I had no idea that Nokia make tires (or tyres as we call them in Australia).

    The Amiga running Workbench, looks so much better than Windows and the Mac, it's such a shame Amiga went broke. It took both Microsoft and Apple a long time to catch up to the Amiga.

    I'm laughing a bit about the 11 lb. cell phone. My first computer was an Atari ST but the first one I really loved was an Amiga 2500. Amazing what could be done with a 68030 processor and 8mb of ram back in the day.

    I only had 1mb of RAM in my old Amiga 500. It's crazy to think that my the computer I'm using right now has more than 4,000 times as much RAM.

    I had an A500 with 512k ram as standard which was a huge amount in the mid 80,s.
    Now laptops have 4gb of ram as standard.How we have progressed so quickly.

    You're not old enough! My first computer had 48K. It was top of the line and luxurious. And I was old then!
