It's not that I'm complaining, it's all the same to me if everything that happens, happens accidentally (Accidental Man, Marillion)
OMG, that is SO funny. What an albatros. Are we dating ourselves. Now my portable Netbook weighs 3 lbs.
I'm feeling the same lust for the new MBPs too. Mine is only 4 years old and yet... I covet.
My Dad, in a misguided effort to give me some sort of career path other than being a heavy metal musician or a drug dealer, once bought me an entire computer setup back in the early 80's. Not far off from what's pictured. I could barely make head nor tails of it, although I did honestly give it a try for a few weeks - reading all of the manuals, attempting to program some simple things via the instructions given. It ended up becoming a great place to put books on top of, but not much else.
Bet this computer could keep your whole house warm in the winter.
I wonder what wonderful computers there will be in 30 years' time?

I remember buying my first computer in 1980. It was a TI-99/4a and I remember buying it because it had 16K of memory. I even programmed it to do my my marks using BASIC... Then a few years later, I bought my first Mac, it had 512K of memory. What a step up.
The tiny screen is especially funny. My ex had a Kaypro that was in sort of a suitcase configuration. And now we get internet on our phones!
You totally miss 1977.'Cause STAR WARS came out that year, too.
Is that the screen? I don't even get it. It looks like a giant calculator.
