Indeed, even by 1980 most computers still had 16k or less. I can remember huge (S-100) memory boards that used some Intel DRAM controller and had up to 32 4016 16k x 1 DRAMS, 64k RAM total. Those things cost between 800 and 1000 Dollars (far beyond my budget with being only 14 years old Smile | :) ) and nororiously suffered from issues with the DRAM's refresh.
 
4k static RAM was all I could afford, but it still works. That was not really much, but already enough to get some things working. Hey, I could even load a debugger (2.25 k) and debug programs of up to 1.75k. No debugging anymore if they got bigger than that. Smile | :)
