omg! that's incredible... I can't even read the fine print, but I can definately read the price, that's just rediculous, even for 1989 when things were just a wee bit cheaper.

And I quote :

"Its Intel 80386 processor operates at a lightnting-fast 20 Mhz"

I remeber my first computer, it was a Packard Bell 386 (33Mhz with 4 MB of RAM). Those were the days...
