More proof that things were better then, the ink hasn't completely faded away. If you get a receipt nowadays and need it for warranty purposes, you had better make a copy of it ASAP.

Wow... 755 quid. Almost a months wages on todays minimum wage.

You'd build one hell of a PC for that amount these days.

Still though - worth every penny, and how spoilt we were those of us who received them for Christmas!

Mind you the mortgage/rent back then was probably 10% what it is now!
