Oh ya, I still have an old PC I bought from a shop in Plano (that never ran right unless I only have 4 Mb of RAM in it) back in the early 90's. I bough it thee to save a bunch of money and though at $2200 I was doing great since it would have been $3500+ from a major.
I also remember buying my first big HDD. A 220 MB drive. I also still have a 40MB MFM drive. It's so big I could use is as a stern anchor for my boat.
