I wish the pricing for modern day cars were more like PC’s.
I Model T sold for $825. A modern every day family car goes for about 20k no days.
Back in 88, I bought an IBM 286AT/10Mhz? w/4megs RAM/2400 baud modem (yeah baby,that was big time back then)/14’ monitor/10meg HD/5 ¼ floppy/CGA (or was it EGA, no I think it was RGB, what ever) video - PC for about $5000.00. In addition, it came with IBM DOS (MS) and you had to load it.
Word Star or Word Perfect and lotus 123 were all separate purchases. Overall, it was POS. It over heated, the memory was of poor design, and I really learned a lot from this PC, having to trouble shoot it all the time.
Now, you can get a Pentium42.0Ghz/128megs/NIC and 56k modem/FULL multimedia CD-RW/19’ Monitor/64meg video, 60Gig HD/3.5 floppy/preloaded OS and small office suit software, etc, etc, and a decent printer for under 2k.
If cars followed the PC pricing, we would all be driving 1000HP cars for $2!
