Take a look at this video on people's reactions and questions about investing in their first personal computer in 1994.

The year 1994 was by no means the infancy of the personal computer, but rather a time where people saw much more value in investing in them, especially for home and private business use.

Depending on your age, you might watch this video and think one of two ways: one being that you can relate to the era and understand the technical limitations of early computers and appreciate them for what they were. You'll probably think to yourself that 1994 was actually not that long ago. On the other hand, you might find 1994 to be a time that is really foreign to you and don't understand why people are really ignorant about them, and that specifications like a 120 megabyte hard drive and 4 megabytes of RAM to be something to laugh about. But that was the standard back then!

What we can all agree on though is that the asking price for computers in 1994 were quite extravagant! Even for today, $2,000 is a heavy price for an average desktop personal computer.
