  • “The prices weren't unusual; the machines went from a semi-modest $2,270 to a wallet busting $4,840.” When you think about that wallet-buster in today’s dollars it would cost $7,345.11 US. It got worse. The hot (literally) new PowerBook 5300ce/117 came out at $9,592.45 in today’s dollars. Apple, chastened by declining sales started offering more reasonable prices in the next few years. I got my PowerBook 1400c/166 heavily discounted from its original asking price of $4,904.49 in 1998. It was a great machine that I remember fondly.
