$1000 is my budget for the computer not the PCB and schematic layout
program. The biggest problem is the free software I have has no
component libraries for the odd stuff I am using like a 84 PLCC socket.
Tango PCB and schematic programs I liked.
I live in a apartment so having room for any big items like a real
computer are out -- front panel, 16K memory , Washing machine err Hard
