40MB (mega bytes!) SCSI drive for my Atari 520 ST here and 4MB RAM (I'm
a tinkerer ;) and it's not only running the Atari TOS, there's a 80286
hardware emulator running DR DOS too.

The C64 in normal usage has got less than 64KB free RAM and already run

But we can't compare those old machines with todays computers, since
today we're doing hardcore multi tasking, render 3D animations etc..
