FOR THE LOW LOW PRICE OF $899 YOU CAN GET THIS FABULOUS COMPUTER:

Intel Pentium 4 1.5ghz
128MB SDRAM at 133mhz
20GB Hard Drive
15" ( 13.8" visible ) CRT Moniter
16MB ATI Rage Ultra 4x AGP Graphics Card
16x Max DVD-Rom Drive
Integrated Audio
Harman Kardon HK-195 Speakers
56k PCI Datafax Modem for Windows
MS Works Suite 2001
Windows ME ( ewwww )

*September 2001

Could you imagine having that? I mean I have 4GB of Ram! I have a 3.0ghz proc NOT overclocked! My Harddrive is 400GB! The list goes on and on! You can get a way better computer nowadays for $900 than in 2001!
And somebody might say the same exact thing about your PC in 6 years.

"That guy only have 4GB RAM? I have 2TB of RAM and unlimited HD space. 50GHz stock clock on my 32-core CPU"
