    this one would have to be the newest of the old here i guess, my first one at home was a p75 / 8meg / 1.2 gig / win3.11 + dos6.22, cd sound etc
    was almost top of the range for its time (about 6 or 7 years ago)

    the first computer i ever used was at primary school (elementary to the US i think) was one of those old apples with the green screen and had everything running off 5 1/4 inch floppies.
    although im still living in an antique shop with the thing im using at the moment...

    hmm, was either a TRS80,

    or an IBM PC AT that I could use whenever I wanted.

    I cant remember which came first.

    Thumbs up Those were the days

    I started out with an Olivetti M24 (something like an 8086).

    I then had an M19 (slower, but I used a VIC20 to soup it up). Two 5 1/4 floppy drives ... but I was able to run a word processor from it ... Lotus Manuscript. No spelling checker due to lack of space, but with plenty of disk swapping, I could make documents.

    I then bought an IBM expansion case ... so that I could add a 30MB hardcard.

    This brings back sweet memories ... playing around with QEMM to optimize memory and the like.

    This make me feel old!

    PS = thanks for the trip down memory lane.
