You must have bought a PC late in the day like I did ( I got my first one in '97 (700) in the early days they were not cheap.
Iv'e got some ace magazines right in front of me...(Oct '91)

286/12mhz 40MB HDD, 1mb ram, mono 929 , vga 1099 (ex vat)
386SX/16mhz 40MB HDD, 1 mb ram, mono 1299, vga 1399 (ex vat)

Maybe they were cheaper elsewhere? I always had a sneaking suspicion that the U.S. paid a lot less for PC's, hence they turned to the PC earlier.
The prices in the late '80's mags iv'e got are even scarier!
