My new computer – 1997

How did we get anything done on the Internet in 1997?

Just a little flash from the past – while going through some old files I found the spec sheet from my cutting edge Gateway P5-166, purchased Feb. 3, 1997, boasting 166MHz Pentium processor, a whopping 32MB of RAM, and a 2.5GB hard drive.  Price, including a $399 HP 5L laser printer – $2568.
