$3000 Floppy Disk Drive

Vintage Computing takes us back to 1977 with this interesting advertisement. Midwest Scientific Instruments wants to make your computer even more boring with their FD-8 Floppy Disk Memory System, which allowed users to easily load programs into system memory. One drawback, the drive was priced at $950.00 ($3,082.73 – 2005) or $1,195.00 wired and tested ($3,877.75 – 2005).

If this is the standard of “boring,” then I suppose my current computer is about 2000% more boring than the average computer in 1977
