    I had a Commodore 64 with a cassette tape deck, 13" b/w tv for a monitor and a 300 baud modem. I was rockin' it in 1983.

    I, too, had a Commodore 64 with a tape deck, but I had one of those phosphorous monitors or whatever the heck they were called back then. I thought I was Mr. Big Stuff for being able to display colors on the monitor. Those were the days.

    This was the first computer that I ever bought with my hard earned money. But I remember something like the Timex Sinclair as my first computer, it's been a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away.

    Mine was a 486 DX 33mhz running Windows 3.1 and DOS that my parents bought me shortly after I started high school. I remember my friends being envious cause most of them has 286 or 386 based PCs at the time.

    Ahh the good ol' days when going online meant connecting to a BBS via dial up on a 2400 baud modem

    My first was an original Macintosh (128K). For a very short time I felt like a truly special snowflake considering we only had TRS-80s and DECmates at school. It's all so funny in hindsight.

    My moms PC was my first ever to use in a house hold environment and that was an old Celeron not a Celeron 2 or 3, but a old Celeron... lmao the good old days.

    But before all of that in school around 1986 they used an apple computer with the BIG B floppy disks for use to see the future basically and also prior to that was the OLD commodore 64.

    The first computer we had in our house looked similar to this...

    Top of the line in its day! It had a CD-ROM drive, floppy drive, and the hot new thing at the time, a ZIP drive!

    I found an old Windows 95 PC in the garbage in the mid-90s. It weighed a ton, and my frail little ~100lb body (I was 10 years old) had such a miserably time walking it home. But alas, I got it home, and I spent my time tinkering with it for years. I broke it, fixed it, broke it again, and fixed it once more. Good memories!

    Timex Sinclair 1000

    Came with 2k (yes, that's kilobytes) of onboard memory, and added a 16k memory expansion. I think my parents kept it...I should pick it up.
