Yeah, that is if they are all 1mb modules which were cheap back
then at 500. I remember the day when 2 64mb modules cost 180,000!
Or 16.9 milliion dollars for 12 gigs!

1975, a 4k memory card for an H8 (using 32 chips, each with a whopping kilobit of memory) cost $600. That's 1.8 billion dollars for 12 gigs.

By 1977, an off-the-shelf TRS-80 had 16k of ram in eight 16k bit chips.

Of course, that's RAM, it might be fairer to compare a CF card to hard disk.
