I was just having a look through a stack of old magazines and found this "top spec" PC in the January 96 issue from a well known supplier. Interesting to see what £4000 would get you then and look at the spec you can get now for a tenth of the price!(and about 20 times faster!)

Pentium P120 Processor
16 Mbyte EDO RAM
1.08 Gb Fast IDE hard disk drive
6 Speed CD ROM
2 Mbyte Matrox Millenium WRAM PCI Graphics
17" llyama Visionmaster
AWE32 Wavetable Souncard
1.44 Mbyte 3.5" Floppy Drive
102 Key Keyboard
Microsoft Original Mouse
Windows 95 c/w disks & manuals
Microsoft Encarta, Dangerous Creatures, Works, Money & Golf.

Price £2345 + Vat = £2776.52

Memory Upgrade 64Mb = £1200

you can get a very very very sexy Mac G5 dual processor model with bags of RAM, a massive hard drive, and a simply superb 20" TFT monitor.

I'm in love with mine.
