Yeah, back then you know... You couldn't just add whatever allmightly CPU you wanted to your system to gain unlimited CPU power. You were stuck with that one CPU, fixed amount of RAM and so on. The choices were limited and that was it. You had to do with what was at hand. Kickass CPUs that could conquer the world werent readily available. stuff like the 6502 CPU ran at about 1 MHz and executed some 0.5 MIPS (meaningless instructions and so on). While todays CPUs can be exhanged at your whim. Whatever you need is at your fingertips. Back in '83-85? No such luck. God, I loved that time. Even though todays stuff is always amazing, I just still get totally knocked out by watching the old videos such as this.
