I bought 128K of memory 1990

I just found out that I bought some memory in Mars 1990. I paid 200 Swedish kronor for 128Kbyte of memory. Yes it is k as in 1024. A quick look tells me that I can buy mor than 1GB DDR-2 memory for the same amount of money. Thats more than 8000 times more memory for the same money.

128Kbyte is:

  • 8 seconds of MP3-music.
  • less than the amount of cache your CPU has. (probably)
  • ... well ... Not much!
