@thomasfuchs My new iMac has $858 million dollars worth of memory at those early-80s prices. That really puts it into perspective. 😮
@thomasfuchs Oh... and those are 1980s dollars!
@thomasfuchs OK I had a moment to run it through a calculator.
Inflation adjusted, the memory in my new iMac is worth $2.87 billion if I would have had to pay for it in 1980 at 2 cents per byte.
@thomasfuchs I used to run my own IT business back in the day. I remember we had an impromptu party when hard drives dropped below £1 per Mb. The drive I bought yesterday would have cost me £8,388,608 . Instead I had change from £200
