Moore's Law Rules... or Depreciation Sucks

I found a magazine from August of 1997. The inside back cover was an advertisement from Micron. Here was the top-of-the-line machine:

  • Intel 266MHz Pentium II (features MMX technology)
  • 32MB EDO RAM
  • 4GB IDE hard drive
  • 19" Hitachi SuperScan CM751 (18" display)
  • Monster 3D graphics card with 4MB memory
  • 3.5" floppy drive
  • 100Mb Iomega Zip drive
  • DVD-ROM drive
  • AWE 64 sound card
  • Speakers, MS Sidewinder Pro joystick, Windows 95, Office 97, etc.

Total price: $4,199.

Don't even ask about the notebooks in the ad.

Amazing. 5-6 years later and CPUs are 10 times faster, we're using 8-16 times the RAM, and our disks are 10-80 times larger. Oh, and not only is everything today that much better, it's probably half the price.
