    Like Sheringan, I bought a 512K RAM expansion for my A500 in early '89 and it cost about 90. (There was a RAM chip shortage in the late '80s, I think.)

    I got my external floppy at the Commodore show in Hammersmith, November '89 also for about 90. (How can I remember all these useless details of my life and yet forget where I put my car keys five minutes ago!?) (I have actually still got a Commodore mug I bought there, although the red bit of the C= logo has faded to nothing after all these years. My wife thinks I'm very sad for keeping it...)

    Anyway, floppies... Verbatim DS/DD jobbies were 1.35 for one, obviously cheaper by the multiple of 10. Or you could get no-name unbranded disks for about 80pence each.

    The first 5 disks by Elephant cost around 8 at the time (1 disk!), which was enormous.

    I remember paying (actually my dad paying) about 100 for the 512k upgrade for the A500. I remember one of the main reasons I wanted it was so that I could play Streetfighter which I had bought in WHSmith in Inverness on a family holiday for 10. What a dissapointment and waste of 10 that was!

    Coud've been worse... You could've bought a 1200 with hard drive and a memory expansion to play Rise Of the Robots. It would have made you suicidal.

    That explains Teho's outlook on life!

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I was going to say no no, it doesn't take that much. You only need to have bought just the game.
