    Old.

    But in its day, it was excellent and light years ahead of the competition
    for many things. The "video toaster" was a very cool product you could
    add on for a very reasonable price and do professional-level video
    editing, titling, etc. I knew a few local TV stations where I grew up
    that purchased them because they were FAR cheaper than high-end video
    editing equipment, and they put out very good results.

    I saw a live demo done on a $500 Amiga 500 with a video toaster - but
    even at $8K, it was a steal compared to the cost of studio equipment. :-)

    But I know what you mean about spending a small fortune on computers.
    Back in '94, I co-authored my first book, and I spent about $12K on a
    pair of Compaq servers for my home lab. $1.5K each for two 32 MB memory
    sticks.

    Ah, the good ol' days. :-)

    My most recent system is an AMD64 dual core, spent about $300 on it plus
    $50 for an upgrade to 2 GB of RAM. :-)
