    Yeah baby I got your 5 & 1/4″ floppy…

    Wonder if that floppy’s been notched on the other side to ‘double-side’ it? *staggers back to his rocking chair*

    that thing probably cost at least $400 when it was brand new.

    that’s just a disk drive…it was only like $200…the base unit (a combo keyboard/CPU) cost $595 back then, so that’s about $1,400. There was also a cassette drive, and the base unit had a cartridge slot. (Mine always had the “colors” cart plugged in. With the press of a button on it you could cycle between 16 color combinations! …who cares if red/blue and yellow/white are completely unreadable…they’re options!)

    Just remember the ,8,1. Without it, we’re forced to RUN/STOP or PRESS PLAY ON TAPE 🙂
