Funnily enough, also amongst my PC clippings was a receipt for some RAM. It was dated 25th Jan 1996 and a single, 8MB 72 pin SIMM cost me 94.65.

To put it into perspective, today I can buy roughly 1000 times the amount of RAM for roughly a 3rd of the price (see here, though I'm sure it is probably even cheaper elsewhere: http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/c...316c10fr8.html )

So much for inflation LOL.
