Seems Hard to Believe

I was reading a thread on here about upgrading a 2004 PC and the OP was told that it had seen its better day. -- This reminded me of when I worked in an a computer store in 1992. We had a PC that had 2 MB (not GB) of RAM and the CPU was 50 mhz. It was illegal to transport out of the US due to its high performance capabilities. It seems hard to believe now................

I had 64 Megs of memory on my first Windows computer. This was in late 1995.

Memory cost me a little over US $1200.
