Someone can always top every story! :-)

The CoCo1 that I first bought back in the early eighties set me back over
$700 Canadian (and the exchange rate was much closer to unity than it is
today). I think that  a disc drive cost over $400. I passed the 32K sucker
on to my son and he sold it for about $50 over 10 years ago. Never did own a
CoCo2, went straight to a CoCo3.
