I worked on some Radio Shack trash 80's, Xerox 860's, Zenith 120's back in the early 80's.  The first personal cpu I owned was an HP my company E-systems, bought for me.  64k mem, 12mhz speed back in 1986.  I was pissed because a week later they came out with the new model at a blazing 22mhz speed. Mad

I received a Commodore Vic 20 back in 1983 or 1984 lol.

My grandfather had an Apple II, that was high-end back then. Also a Ti-99, which had a lot of games like Parsec.

Mostly we played Atari and Nintendo though, computers kind of sucked in the 80s.

A lot has changed how Pc's are advertised in warehouse ads since the early days. Back in the early 80's Ram amount was the selling point, then in the early 90's they switched to processor speed, now they don't even mention cpu speed just the brand name and in a side note they have the ram, gpu and screen size
