    An Acermate, they don't make em anymore.
    I had it upgraded several times back in 1993, it came with nothing and I put in cdrom/sounds/faster cpu/extra ram, and when the internet became available a 14.400 kbp modem.

    Floppys = Boat anchors.
    Modem........sigh........I fell old now........I had to strap my first one into a shoebox style cradle and hang on for the long ride. As well I had to wait on the tape deck to cue up.

    I hang my head in shame.....

    My First Computer

    My First Computer Was an Old IBM PCjr... talk about old... this thing didn't even have a hard drive in it. All it used was 51/4" floppy drives... oh yeah, and cartridges... I had a BASIC programming one, but then the PCjr bit the dust... *sob*

    I still have the computer, and the motherboard and cards are now mounted in my locker at school... *sigh*

    Our first computer was an Apple 2e. Technically it was my parents. My first computer was a 386 with Win 3.1, and itty bitty hard drive, and a 2400 baud modem. I still have it, but it lacks a motherboard.

    My first system was a C64. Those were the days. I loved my C64. Actually I've still got it. And it still works. hehe. Good for some of the older games like Ghostbusters & crap like that.
