I upgraded to a one gig hard drive that year at a price of $1,000. Now my MacBook Pro with a 250 gigabyte drive cost under $1500 for the whole computer. All this was accomplished solely be American ingenuity and free enterprise. Liberalism, progressivism, or whatever euphemistic name it’s called these days, had absolutely nothing to do with any of it, except perhaps to make each advance more difficult than it might have been otherwise.
