Was clearing out some papers on the weekend and found this: an order form for a Gateway computer from June 2000. I can hardly believe I used to spend that much dosh on buying computers.
I seemed quite impressed with the spec when I ordered it.
That computer worked until 2005, when its (custom) PSU died.
Comparison of costs: 1995 vs 2000 vs 2005.
To this day, the speakers that came with it (from “Cambridge Soundworks”) are still going strong, even though their beige colour doesn’t match all the black stuff.
