Prices slowly coming down

You can buy a reasonably modern, compact 16″ television for $229.

You would’ve paid $239 a reasonably modern, compact 16″ TV… 49 years ago.

I always like things like that. For the first 20-some years of my buying personal computers (basically, until I switched to laptop Macs), my new computers (including monitors) always cost $800, give or take $100. This goes back to using bar mitzvah bucks to help buy the family our Commodore PET in ’78. It would’ve been just $600, but we wanted the full 8 kilobytes of RAM.
