Comparing today’s computers to 1995’s

Here is a table to visualize how far we’ve come in 17 years:
Part
1995 PC
2012 PC
Memory
8mb at $400 per 4 MB
4 gigabytes is common…, which is 4,000 megabytes
Hard Drive
400 to 1000 megabytes
500 Gigabytes is low end… which is 500,000 megabytes.  500 GB can be as low as $80.  Terabyte drives are common (1,000,000 megabytes) for less than the cost of a 1994, 400MB drive
Processor
33MHz
4,000 MHz+ with multiple cores and countless optimizations (clock speed is not a clear measurement for processing power)
Video
24-bit accelerated
PCI Express 2 (replacing PCI, and then AGP) with 1-2 Gigabytes of dedicated RAM, for about $250
Monitor
14” CRT
22” wide screen LCD/LED
Sound
Sound Blaster 16 (16-bit)
24-bit, PCI Express, 3d, quad core processors with onboard RAM
Modem
28.8
Obsolete, except for users in very rural areas
Optical Disk
2x CD-ROM
BluRay, DVD, some CD-ROM left…
