That makes me think about my personal computer past too grin  The first computer I had growing up in the UK was an Acorn Atom which was a kit.  It had 1K of RAM, no hard drive, it used tapes to load and store programs.  The next was a Sinclair Spectrum.  That was a lot of fun grin  It had pretty cool graphics for the time.  Next was the Commodore computers.  My nephew had a Vic 20.  I had a C64 and finally an Amiga.  I still have my Amiga.  At work I was using a Dell Z800.  That thing would be awesome for running my DAZ Studio!

I am now totally addicted to DAZ Studio by the way.

I still have the receipt for my first PC - 1982- an original IBM PC, monochrome monitor, upgrade to 64 KB, two single-side full-height 5.25 inch floppy drives, an async I/O card, a Hayes 300 baud smartmodem, and an Epson MX-100 printer. $6,000 including pc-dos, cpm-86, and the Microsoft assembler.

The floppy drives held 160 KB and were $540 EACH. Last year I picked up two 1-TB hard drives for under $220.

And we over-clocked the 300 baud modem to do file transfers at 450 bits/second.

The money I’ve tossed away on computers over the years . . .

Me too. Actually, this one was upgraded to 12KB.

I had all these myself, the Amiga’s were the 500 and 1200. I only have my C64 now.
