@Miserichord (Minor nitpick from yesterday): the strip is from 1982, not 1986. If you’re interested in what was available in 1982, this has a timeline going back to 1970, and if you pick a computer, it shows (perhaps incomplete) pricing information for models (and competitors) under that brand.But even that’s somewhat misleading. A 1982 computer with the memory capacity of what you’re using to read this probably wouldn’t fit in the room you’re in, and that doesn’t include the space needed for the cooling technology. It cost a lot more than $5,000.
