Intel 486DX33
8Mb RAM
250Mb Hard Drive
Tsenglabs ET4000 1Mb Video
Soundblaster Pro
14" Multisync SVGA Monitor
5.25" and 3.5" Floppy (CDROM was a later upgrade)

$AUD 3,000 (1,350 - back in 1991, 1,945 today)
Yeah, computer stuff back then was a lot of money - mainly because of the userbase... much like OS4x is now (i.e. small). Nowadays the PC market is so huge they cost ten a penny for a mid spec system.
The Amiga netbook looks very interesting... that's something that floats the boat
