The Philips CD-i (Compact Disc Interactive) is an interactive multimedia CD created to provide more functionality than an audio CD player or game console, but at a lower price than a personal computer with a CD-ROM drive at the time. The cost savings were due to the lack of a hard drive, floppy drive, keyboard, mouse, and monitor. It was released on December 3rd 1991 for $1,000.00, which would equate to $1,816.87 today.
