LOL. I held on for the longest time to my first CD-writer. I may have  
now passed it along via Freecycle, but surely only in the last 6 months.

I paid 160 for that 4x, and that was after quite a bit of shopping  
around and a ride to the other side of London to collect. Going from  
unreliable 1.44meg floppies was quite a revelation to me, and I spent  
about 100 on 100 blank disks to take to uni with me - again, these  
were the cheapest I could find, from a media specialist in Berwick
