"I was doing some cleaning around the room that serves as my home office, going through a bunch of paperwork. I am a bit of a pack rat and I often save things for far too long, as in way past when they would have any value. One of the things I ran across was a receipt dated December, 2009 for the purchase of my current desktop computer. I bought a low-end, small footprint desktop: an eMachines EL-1300G. The cost at a local big box retailer was $159. A friend of mine was so impressed she went to the store right before Christmas to buy one as a gift for her sister. The price had dropped to $149. Of course, the systems came preloaded with Windows. Linux was not an option.
