I vaguely remember my parents owning a computer similar to that. It didn't have a mouse and there wasn't much we could do with it...laughable when compared with our computers today...

It's really amazing to see how far technology has come since this add was published. And the prices and size, wow! I cant even imagine what technology will look like when in 20 years let alone next year!

It's crazy to think how times have changed. My laptop was much less and way nicer. My parents didn't even have a computer and until this day my dad doesn't even come near my laptop haha.

Yeah, wasn't that the year before L.T. jacked up Thiesman. I bet you old Joey calls up John at least once a week to thank him for winning that game for him. Probably wouldn't be a commentator today if it wasn't for Mr. Riggins. I wonder if he still has nightmares of L.T. and wets the bed at night?

I can't believe how much computers used to cost, i remember when my dad had the computer with windows 1995 and it seemed so outdated. Oh how the times have changed.

I kind of remember playing a game on a computer like that when i was young, but it would always shut off randomly haha.

Wow! I haven't seen a computer like that before. EVER! It's older than I am. The way computers are constantly changing and upgrading is scary. I bought my laptop in late October, and it's already been taken off the shelvs and replaced by something in a way higher class that does twice as much as my computer does and weighs almost nothing...It's scary!

You would be hard pressed to find a computer that costs that much even if you custom built every single thing with the best possible components

For the longest time I remember typing away on a computer that was very similar to that. It was so slow and stuck all the time. Finally, it broke down and we had to get a new one. Its hard to believe how much prices have gone down since then.

LoL i think its kinda funny of how its really not even that long ago, its almost thirty years ago, and look at what the computers are today. If they have changed that much in just that short amount of time, i cant wait to see what they look like 2030. Its amazing how fast technology changes.

My parents never had a computer that long ago. That computer is so huge! And 3,000 dollars, who would be willing to pay that! I guess its like everything else, super expensive until something newer comes out and then the price deflates.

O geeze! I still remember my first computer ages ago. It looked just like that. It is so funny and remarkable to see how our computers evolved! NOw days computers are super thin and small, cannot wait to see how computers are gonna look like in the next 10-20 years.
