Moore’s Law

My first PC: 486DX2 66Mhz, 16MB of RAM, 320MB of hard disk in two drives, removable storage 1.4MB 1.5" floppy disk at $2 each.

PC I’m finding a home for now (discards from TAFE & high schools intended for a primary school, this one was missing several drivers for devices under MS-Windows XP but runs Kubuntu just fine): Pentium4 2×3000MHz, 1024MB of RAM, 80,000MB of hard disk in one drive, removable storage 4400MB DVD burner with blank discs at $0.30 each or 2048MB flash stick at $6 each.

Smallest PC from the set (ditto for drivers): Pentium3 1000MHz, 256MB of RAM, 20,000MB of hard disk in one drive, removable storage 770MB CD burner with blank discs at $0.30 each, plus 4400MB DVD reader, or 2048MB flash stick.
