haha, I've seen that one before.

sometimes it's funny looking at old computer commercials and seeing things like "blazing fast 266MHZ P2" or "ultra huge 300MB hard drive"

We'll be looking back in ten years time and laughing at the systems we have now. Reminds me of my Amstrad 1512 that I had back in '89. Didn't even have a hard drive. The sad thing is, most people have more computing power in their phones now.
