The biggest mistake I made with it was when I pulled out the processor to look at it, and when I put it back in, I broke the little lever I tried just putting the chip in and sliding it to the side myself, but I had to get a whole new mobo..

The first computer I used was my dad's 386, running Windows 3.1. All I ever did on it was play JetFighter2 and write cheesy little stories in word.

My first pc
My first PC was the original, IBM PC (the first they ever produced). Not sure what speed the processor was, but it was an Intel.
For $3005 this is what we got:
[list=1][*]64,000 bytes of memory[*]Single diskette drive - 5.25 inch with a whopping 160 kilobytes per disk!!![*]Monocrhome display - 25 lines of 80 characters on a 11.5 inch display[*]Dot-matrix printer - 80 characters/sec!!![*]6lb keyboard (damn was that heavy)[*]Microsoft's Disk Operating System (yeah DOS)[/list=1]
It was a beauty. Programmed my first BBS in Basic using GOTO's galore. Ah, back in the day...

The first computer I ever worked with was an old Apple. Can't remember the model. The first computer in our household was my mom's C64... No disk drive, but we had a tape drive (that used audio tapes.) My first computer was a Packard Bell 486 50Mhz with 4M of RAM and a 420 M hard drive. I still have it and still use it. I now also own 4 PS/2 computers, an Apple ][c and several old 486's. Our main computer is a custom build I threw together (AMD K-6 450Mhz w/ 384 M RAM and an ATI Rage Fury Pro, a generic 12x DVD, a CD burner, CallWaiting modem, 30 Gig HD and an old Sound Blaster 32. It runs Mandrake 8.1. We're gonna upgrade the cpu soon (to cut some of the chop from playing DVD's).

My first computer is the one I still use. It has a 433 celeron. It originally came with a 4.3 gig hard drive but now has that and a 30 gig unit. It originall came with 32mb of Ram but now has 512mb. I also added an 8x CD burner, and an Ultra ATA 66 PCI hard drive controller card. I run both Windows 98 SE, and Mandrake Linux on it.
