    4GB SD card for less than £15......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Here's the link:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/125884


    and if you combine it with:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/126448

    You have a flexiable memory stick, not as secure as some as the biometric (finger print) ones we use for sensitive data, but for just the odds and sods, it's ideal!

    Can I do my "eee, when I were a lad" speech now :-)

    My first PC (1981) was a homebrew Nascom 2; it came with 1k (yes, that's 1024 bytes) of RAM which was OK for machine code but not enough for BASIC. For that you needed 8k. I can't remember how much that cost but I do remember having to save up for it so it would have been a lot more than £15!!!

    I remember having to pay £70 back in 1993 for 2MB RAM.........that doubled the RAM in the 386MHz PC I was using at work at the time! Ah, Windows 3.11............

    Well my first foray into programming (Basic) was back in 1984 on my trusty rubber-keyed Sinclair Spectrum. I still have it somewhere & it still works. Sad or what?

    Got to admit I'm sad as I love it when threads get to the stage of I remember when

    and on that note my first 'proper' computer cost me £400 and was an XT PC with 512KB or Ram. then after a 386 I bought my first laptop a 386sx (i.e. you had to buy the maths coprocessor seperately which of course I did!), it came with a whopping 1Mb or Ram which I eventually upgraded to a staggering 5Mb for the princely sum of another £400. Incidentally I bought a Cannon BJ10sx mono printer to go with it, which I still have after having sold it once to someone then when they changed to a modern colour printer I got it given back and I still use it every so often when I need to take a printer away with me! Think I'd better stop there..... ops:

    My "first PC" was one that my dad had bought when i was very young (possibly before i was born, i don't quite know) it was an amstrad CPC.

    Green monitor and completely controlled from the keyboard like most PCs of the time...all the circuitry was underneath your fingers . Had a 2.something inch floppy disk drive...no hard drives obviously. I can't remember the specs but i do know it had a lovely IBM dot matrix printer and some old serial joystick

    Paperboy was such an awesome game.
