Computers Nine Years Ago: Check This Out


I was rooting through some old email this week, and I came across an old PDF file back from 2000 that had a computer system that I had spec’d out for a friend. I got a chuckle when I looked at the specifications – a 433 Mhz Celeron CPU, 64 MB of RAM, a 10 GB hard drive, a graphics card with 4 MB of RAM. Those look like typos today don’t they? Those specs wouldn’t even run a netbook today. And how much was this hot-rod computer from nine years ago? $1589 CAD. Oh, but it includes a 17 inch CRT monitor, so that makes it quite the bargain… 😉
