No, they are a damned menace!
If it were not for them I might retain a semblance of sanity!


I beat you to the draw, Nuro - a 48k Apple II in 1979.
£2,500 all in with two 5.25" (180k I think) floppies and an Epson 80 column printer, with a copy of Apple Writer and Visicalc (in 40 columns) which I used to charge local businesses £5 an hour for using in my home. But I eventually made more money selling Australian made 80 column video cards for £265 a shot. Whoo, you can nearly buy a whole PC for that money now!

My son still has it somewhere at his place in Manchester and next time I visit, we will dig it out and play a game of Sir-Tech's 'Wizardry' for old times sake.
Best money I ever spent actually.

HARD DRIVES!
I remember the first Apple compatible HDD - it was a WHOLE ONE MEGABYTE
and it cost a whole one thousand pounds!
It was about 4 inches high and eight inches wide, but around two whole FEET in depth!
Then came the two Mega Byte model and it was two thousand quid.
I didn't buy one, needless to say!
Now we can get 250,000 Mega Bytes for under £100 - that's progress!
