What year was this?

In the same spirit as "What camera is this" the film-look section, would anyone like to guess what year these adverts are from?

Found them while I was going through and culling my collection of Australian "Desktop" magazine.

Adobe Premiere 4.2 and the Targa 1000 and Windows NT -- I'm going to guess 1996 or 1997.

Ah the memories... At the Opera Company in 1995 I got a top of the line Power Mac 8100/100mhz system with a whopping 48MB of memory, a Radius VideoVision card and Premiere 3.0. Add a 17" Radius monitor and a zip drive and the tab came to about $9,000! Couldn't afford a disk array so it struggled to keep up with 640x480 video from our Hi-8 camera.

Circa 1996 indeed.

Is it me, or do I really have memories of running Windows and software in 4Mb (or was it 16Mb) of RAM?

When I got the machine with 48MB, people stopped by to visit just to see a machine with that much memory!
