The Commodore 64 vs. the iPhone 3G S: The Ultimate Showdown


Sat, Jun 27th, 2009 07:01 by capnasty NEWS

The Commodore 64 was considered to have a lot of RAM (64KB) at a surprisingly low price ($595) back in 1982. The iPhone 3G S has 4,000 times the RAM (256MB) for one-third the price (with an AT&T contract), and that's not even taking into consideration the fact that it also has an additional 250,000 times as much memory (or 500,000, if you spring for the 32GB model) as the C64 in the form of its flash storage. Or that the starting price of $199 for an iPhone 3G S is really more like $90 in 1982 dollars. Did I mention that that the 3G S fits in your pocket?
