The Honeywell H316 Pedestal Kitchen Computer (Episode 515) prompted a listener (whose name Dick forgets to mention) to write in.  Back in 1970, he had a 5-year lease on an IBM 1130 with a card reader, printer and cartridge and tech support, for $2,000.   That's $2,000 a month.  For more on its history, visit IBM's archives.
