In the early 1970's,  a friend of the family had an engineering calculator, I believe it was made by HP, that was the size of a very large mobile phone and cost almost $1000. In 1974, Texas Instruments sold the TI-30 for less than $40. Besides the Tandy's and Compaq's, there was a Kaypro. All used floppy discs and were limited to 64k to 128k of memory. My first experience in programming was with a Compaq toteable with 64k. Those were the good ole' days!
