    I don't know how old you guys are, but in 1980 or so, I had an IBM AT with a 10 mbyte hard drive and that was the most advanced computer available.

    I had an Atari ST (designed by the same guy that did the Commodore 64). It didn't have a hard drive...everything had to loaded from a floppy. I loved that thing.

    The first hard drive on our first computer at home (I'm 23) was 80 MB ... we upgraded the RAM eventually to 5 MB, and the computer was 33 MHz.

    I at least don't feel as old as I am .. ok except on some mornings ;)

    My first Computer was a C64 which had by far less memory than my mobile phone today ;) .. but people did by far more amazing things with it!

    Today one electronic generation is replaced by the follow up generation of devices BEFORE people actually manage to get the best out of it which can be done with it... ;)

    Soocom, I too had the timex sinclair. We upgraded to the 16KB expansion pack. Did you ever save your programs on audio tape? I can still remember that horrible sound that the data made. Sounded like a fax machine. And of course, you had to get the volume juuuuuusst right or it wouldn't work at all. Geez, and I'm only 34.

    Wow- even I'm impressed with this!

    It wasn't long ago when the 16GB CF (the largest then) cost $5000 :lol:
