i've got an old laptop sitting in my room with 640KB of RAM, a CGA graphics adapter and 20MB drive. Great stuff.

And a BASIC interpreter, or does it have the DOS operating system?

I think it has an older version of DOS on it. It's not -quite- ancient enough to fill the screen with the old 10 PRINT "UA ROCKS", 20 GOTO 10 nonsense. It's been a long time since i took it out.

Oh yeah. Funny thing is, in 10-20 years we will be laughing at what we had in 2009!

Yeah. Look at the jump from single video cards to SLI, and then from that to cards with comparable power as a single card (which you could still link together anyway!) Or single cores to dual and quads. It boggles the mind how quickly this stuff can expand.
