Luxury .. I only had the 328 ( 1986 ) ...

And at fist I had no storage medium so I wrote all my programs out on paper (in BASIC or Assember) then when I wanted to run them I had to type them in again!

After a couple of months I acquired a cassette tape drive for storing my programs (there was no disk drive available at first). It was almost faster to type them in than store and load them from cassette tape!

Went straight from that to a DOS PC ( 8088 ) with a 4.7 MHz CPU about 256 kb of ram, dual 5 1/4” floppy drives (no hard drive) and monochrome monitor :)

Powermac 6100/60, about 15y ago or so. 8mb ram, 250mb hdd, cd-rom, 60mhz, 15’’ apple monitor, Os 7.5.

Just to thing that it was supposed to be a rocket back then with those specs…LMAO. Oh man, its price was like giving 10K today, seriously an arm and a leg back then. Still got it, actually sitting close to me in the room right now, looking like new :grin: And in full working condition. Not that I use it ofcourse lol
