Advertisements Heck, you're just no fun anymore. I was a late bloomer -- I passed on the Commodore, and although I'd love a MacAir, my wife thinks it costs too much. I did use one Mac at work, but have never owned one. The first PC I really seriously considered was the original IBM PC. Cost $5000 with two floppy drives and 64K of ram, "color" monitor, and a printer. I passed and eventually bought a Gateway 386sx for about the same price in 1987.
