DOS Days

Typical PCs Each Year


Nowadays it can be difficult to recall what PCs were common in any given year, and even more crucially, what components/chipsets were common. This page aims to catalogue low-end to high-end PCs and their component parts for each year during the DOS era. UK and USA prices and trends are reported where my research allows.

Note that the various prices and models mentioned in these pages have been taken from major high-street computer magazines, so the focus here is on the everyday computer buyer, not large corporate businesses.
