1990 the year that was

Found a receipt for a Mac IIsi holiday Bundle #2, 5 megabyte RAM with an 80 megabyte hard drive, a 13 inch RGB HighRes Color Monitor. The price was $3,729.08

17 years ago, this was the third level mac. It was the only one I could afford. I needed it for my job as a lecture notes taker. But I also used it for gaming.

Now, we have a MacPro computer. Cost is slightly higher. But the difference is striking.
