Swedish home computer prices

The following table gives a rough view on how prices on certain home computers on the Swedish market changed during a couple of years in the middle of the 80'ties. A number of Swedish computer magazines ranging from spring 1983 to early 1985 were checked.

All prices given in SEK, which was about 7 SEK per USD. The lowest price found in an advertisment around that time is in plain text, while recommended price as given by a distributor (or sometimes competitor) is in bold. In both cases, a price is only shown if had changed (was lower) than before.

Disclaimer: Some computers may have been introduced on the market several months prior to that a recommended price or an advertisment was found. A computer for which only distributor's recommended price is shown doesn't mean it was not available for mail order.
