Computers in the 80


Recommended Posts

RAM? From what I remember, probably 64-128K. Less if the systems were from '80. And that FILLED up an entire plugin CARD. Memory chips were individually plugged into the card. Programming languages were usually BASIC, and ... Turbo Basic! LOL Ah, the good old days. 8" floppies, mainframes with 14" removable disc packs with total capacity in the 10's of MB. Hey, at least these systems had gotten past paper tape/ punch cards/ cassette tape storage and some of them were even in color, if you used a TV as a display. Good times! (I told you I was old, N1k)

Cheers and Regards.
