Happy Days.
I remember walking into them a few short years later and yup - same thing here.

There'd be 3 or 4 machines in the shop, each on their own little plinth. The cheapest one, a 386-33 if I remember, was about $3k and 486s were years off. Remember standing in line at a shop once and listening to the bloke in front asking about the 80486DX and 80486DX2. He was querying the poor soul about memory latencies and about wait-states. It looked to our teenage minds like the sales-bloke was about to have an brain aneurysm.

Last week spied on old Toshiba Portege with an i5, 4gb, 256gbssd and full-hd 10-point-touch panel.
They wanted $259.
I still remember looking in the green-guide (telly/tech guide offered in a newspaper) at the price of ram. $65 a megabyte? Holy sheet that's cheap!
