Cavemen computing , i had the same but i bought it second hand sadly i traded it in for a 286 pc with cga colour and 2 x 40mb harddrives combined in to on 80 mb harddrive , the funny thing was that it only worked good if a hammer was lying next to the pc cabinet

after that i started to learn how to build my own pc's , but with the fallen prices of a brand pc's it is no longer profitable to build your own

I bought several of these drives for a NAS server that I built. They are good for backups of photos / videos etc

I remember paying 550.00 for a 10 MB drive for the commodore 64, The Lt Kernal first hard drive for a personal computer. Ran my 5 line BBS off that for years!

My first computer was a Heathkit which I assembled myself. I had a choice of an external dual floppy drive unit or tape. I chose the floppy drives. The floppy drive unit was $400 and was purchased from a company in Princeton NJ. I paid extra for 64k ram. This was in the early eighties.

I forgot to mention, the operating system was CPM. Bill Gates had not introduced PC operating system yet.

I had a Commodore with a cassette when I was a kid in the late 70's early 80's too. I was fortunate enough to be in art school in the mid 80's when the first macs came out. We loved them because we could set type on them and didn't have to use press type on our graphics projects. I studied air brush retouching at the time because it was thought that computers could never do something like that...
