Computer Shopper Magazine - anyone remember this badboy??

This magazine was basically the internet in magazine form as far as shopping for parts....

The internet wasn't in the public's hands yet at the time. I was running a BBS on the gulf coast of Miississippi at the time.

I used to love just going through this magazine looking at the ads for the lowest price possible on a part. Companies like Micron, Packard Bell, Gateway, and many others used to have like 10 pages each, and the whole magazine was easily over 300 pages.

Many a tree was chopped for our pc satisfaction.

I wonder if Newegg ever had an ad in there...

Good times indeed.
