It almost makes me yearn for the days of my first computer... a TRS-80
Model III that came with 16KB RAM and 16KB ROM which I upgraded to the
max of 48KB RAM and 16KB ROM. Then I remember that that machine, at
twice the price of todays low end systems, had no hard drive, no floppy
drive and I saved my programs and data on a cassette tape. Can we say
slow and unreliable? When I upgraded the memory, I also put in two
floppy drives (160K 5-1/4") at a cost of $800. That was the third party
price - Radio Shack wanted that much for just a single floppy drive.

system is only having 128MB which tend to be not enough those days (even
Yes, that's sadly not much RAM nowadays.
