1989 Computer Paper Ad Page

Moore's Law not only meant speed and memory increased exponentially, it also meant the price dropped a little. This 1989 ad page from the back of a local computer publication has adequate machines for $2200, serious ones for $3200, and the top-end offering is $7000, for boys who must have the biggest toys on their block.
