See how price goes down fast? A K6-III system in 1999 was actually 800 bucks. Pentium PCs were high in the 1.5k for the system alone...those AT PCs.

What I hate, is when ppl dont get how pcs go so cheap after a year or 4. In the newspaper around me there is a laptop for sale, its got a 500mhz PII and crappy other stuff. Sure a long time ago it was very pricy but now its not worth much at all, it is a laptop but its still not worth wat they are asking, which is $350. Spcially when you can get a dell for $50 more with a much better everything. $350!! put a decimal in there and I'll get it, lol.
