A local computer warehouse is selling name-brand 1GB USB 2.0 flash drives for $150 Canadian for Christmas. Which got me thinking.... In 1990 I bought a state-of-the-art Amiga 2000 with a GVP 68030+ accelerator board (at a blazing 25MHz!). I added 4-MEGAbytes of RAM to populate the board. It needed some fairly fast RAM for its time, for which I paid apx $250/MB. My shaky hands wrote a check for $6,000 for the A2000 system (which wasn't nearly as painful as the $3,000 Amiga 500 I bought two years earlier!) I even got the "big" 80-MEGAbyte hard drive which I thought I could never possibly fill. In 2004 my Amiga is almost old enough to drive and it still works great! Now it seems to me that a GIGAbyte equals 1,000 MEGAbytes, so in 1990 a GIGAbyte of RAM would have cost $250 x 1,000 or a QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS!!! Pretty amazing when you put it into perspective like this. Any other similar comparisons come to mind, as computers have advanced over the last 20 years?
