    My facts:

    Per KB of ram in the past 35 years, it would have cost you over 162,000 times more
    Per Mhz of CPU in the past 35 years, it would have cost you 2000 times more

    Both completely blow away Moore’s Law

    The world’s first one gigabyte disk drive was announced in 1980. It weighed 550 pounds and had a price tag of $40,000.
