I got the urge to clean up a bunch of drawers yesterday, and I happened upon many of my receipts for PC parts. I was shocked to find a receipt for a 6.4GB hard drive that I bought in 1997 for a whopping $305 plus tax! I about fell over when I saw the price. I do remember paying $300 for a 540MB hard drive in the early 1990's. I found another receipt from 1998 (I think) for a 13.6GB hard drive, and it was around $290. Another receipt showed me paying over $220 for a 2x4x CDRW drive in 1999. I found a receipt for a Celeron 300A/256MB RAM combo package for over $400 (this was back when overclocking the Celeron 300A to 450MHz was a fun pasttime). Then I found another receipt that showed me my current motherboard is over 3 years old...Time to upgrade! Just last week I bought a 100GB hard drive with 8MB cache for $75 after mail-in rebates. Amazing how PC prices change so dramatically over time.
