"[...] you can buy a basic system for £1k, a usable system for £2k and a high-end beast for £3k."
It was also a time of high inflation. My Apple II in 1978 cost nearly £2k for B&W video and a single floppy disk. My Elonex IBM compatible with 20MB disk in the mid-1980s cost £2k. A top end Dell laptop in 2003 cost £2.5k.
Of those - the earlier ones were a much larger slice of my income.
