I suspect todays computers will look equally silly in a few years. Thanks for the memories. I like the one that mentions the "massive 48mb of ram" but comes at a price.

God that brings back memories, but worse, of the "luggables" we all got given in 1989 to do roaming support:

I knew they were heavy but I never realised they were that heavy! 23 pounds!

Happy days.

I wonder what people would think if you could go back in time and show them something like that new Apple pad or something equally as cool?

In 1993 I had a little Toshiba laptop with monochrome screen
I was a hot rod at the time with whopping 50mhz processor and a 120mb hard-drive and 8mb of ram. It was plenty to run windows 3.1. I seem to recall it cost about $2500. I used it for 6 years and the screen finally pooped. It would still boot and could use it with an external monitor,
It pretty amazing how things have changed and what you can buy for $1000 now.

I think we paid about two grand sterling for our first IBM PC back in the 1980's. It had a "cassette port"!
