I have some old issues of Byte, and some Atari magazines.
It is amazing to see the prices of the systems. Things like $500 Atari
8-bit computers, and $2500 5 *megabyte* hard drives.
What is equally amazing though, is just how much work I got done on a
little Atari, or with nothing but a terminal on a timeshared computer
with a printer available.
Most PC type people today will never understand how 50 of us shared a
single system with 512K RAM, and got work done with VT100 terminals and
an old line printer.
